AirPlay available on Denon and Marantz components
Home electronics component manufacturers Denon Electronics and Marantz America have released a firmware update that provides AirPlay music streaming capability on nine of their network-capable audio/video components in their respective lineups.
AirPlay, a feature included in Apple’s iOS 4.2 and iTunes 10.1 updates, lets you stream music from your Mac or iOS device over your Wi-Fi network to compatible AV receivers and stereo systems. Along with Bowers & Wilken, Denon and Marantz are among the first companies to offer AirPlay-compatible home audio components.
Marantz’s new IP-based products, including the SR7005 A/V Receiver ($1,599), AV7005 A/V Preamplifier ($1,499), NA7004 Network Audio Player ($799) and M-CR603 Networked CD Receiver ($699) are also AirPlay-compatible.
