Apples AirPlay lets you wirelessly stream music from any compatible device. This means you can easily enjoy your iTunes music library through your AV receiver.
Stream with DLNA:
DLNA is now widely supported on PCs, laptops, smartphones and other devices. This receiver being DLNA certified, you can easily stream audio from such a device using your home network.
The remote of the future:
iControlAV2 is our 2nd-generation app that lets you control all important receiver functions from your smartphone or tablet.
Music listening made social:
Air Jam is a Bluetooth-based app that lets a group of people connect with their iPhones, iPod Touch or iPads and add their songs to the receiver playlist.
Less jitter, better audio:
PQLS speed synchronises the digital audio data between the receiver and your Blu-ray player, reducing the jitter. The result is clear, rich and precise audio.
