Best Airplay receivers

Apple Inc. launched a unique application called AirPlay. This concept has been widely recognized worldwide. You must remember that if you want to use AirPlay, you must have an airplay receiver. Now many manufacturers equip their devices with this protocol and on our website, you can compare such receivers and choose the best airplay receiver.

What is AirPlay and how does it work?

AirPlay technology is enabled users to stream content wirelessly. The content was transmitted directly over the Wi-Fi network, but the device turned out to be very difficult to configure.

This AirPlay technology is simple and reliable, and when your Apple device is connected to the same Wi-Fi network, pressing a single button is enough to start streaming.

The airplay 2 receiver enables wireless music streaming to and between compatible devices on the same Wi-Fi network. Broadcasting is carried out using the control center on devices on iOS, Apple TV and iTunes.

Besides, AirPlay 2-compatible speakers from different manufacturers can be combined, which expands the choice of components of a multi-room system.

With AirPlay 2, multiple users can add songs to the playlist at once - each from their iPhone. Thus, AirPlay 2 eliminates the need to connect each iPhone to the speakers.

What is AirPlay on a receiver?

Built-in AirPlay support is one of the most prominent features in Denon, Marantz, Sony, Yamaha, Pioneer models which provides several significant advantages.

HDMI free input

Today, the HDMI interface is one of the main ones for connecting AV devices, so each HDMI port can count on you. And true connoisseurs of home theaters often lack HDMI inputs.

Support for Zone 2

Another advantage of the best airplay 2 receivers is multizone support. Zone 2 on receivers does not support audio from digital inputs, so with built-in AirPlay support, you have this opportunity and sometimes you can even send music to Zone 1 from one source.

No additional appliances

With the integrated AirPlay, the receiver will automatically switch to AirPlay playback when you select streaming audio - you do not need to switch the inputs. Yes, switching the signal source to AirPlay is not a problem at all, but the built-in support will make it easier for users who are perplexedly looking at the receiver's remote control with a bunch of small buttons.

Differences between AirPlay vs. AirPlay 2

AirPlay 2 is the next stage in the development of the protocol developed by Apple that allows users to wirelessly stream videos, music, and photos from one compatible device to another, and it is already supported by Apple-branded devices, including iPhone, iPad, Apple TV, Mac, and HomePod.

Unlike AirPlay, the AirPlay 2 is integrated into Apple devices at the system level. This means that services like Spotify, Tidal, Netflix, and HBO will work with the protocol without any additional settings.

Another advantage of the second generation of AirPlay is its integration with HomeKit. In this case, AirPlay 2 provides an audio transfer to all home devices running this platform. Through the Home application for iPhone and iPad, the user can customize home audio equipment to their taste: compatible speakers can be grouped into multi-rooms, stereo pairs, or used as single audio sources.
