    You could always just upgrade to an AVR that has built in AirPlay support. Tons of the newer models have it and it would probably be the most integrated if you don't want an Apple TV or express plug in device. Just a thought.

    • Yeah this was my first thought. I have the Sony STR-DN1020 that I just bough three years ago. The follower has Airplay but mine's too new to upgrade..mekk
    • Sony's built-in streaming is rubbish on this model and on their TV's too, BTW.mekk
    • I have a Sony AVR as well, but it is too old for any streaming. I use an Apple TV for my audio every single day and I have zero complaints. Great at parties toomonospaced
    • It's only $65 new, it's tiny, silent, boots up instantly, never crashes and ANY device on the network with AirPlay can stream nearly anything to itmonospaced
    • HDMI straight to the AVR with its own input, no need to even turn on the display.monospaced
    • The Apple TV doesn't need it's own network and tries to be a router, or?mekk
    • no, not at all... it's more like another iphone on the network than anythingmonospaced
