Apple Airplay 2 AV Receiver
What is AirPlay? AirPlay is a transmission standard that works wirelessly. It is used to distribute media files via suitable technological components.
These files can be photos, music or videos. The connection technology is especially suitable for owners of an Apple product such as iPhone or iPad. The basis for the system is WLAN. Now, the Apple device must be in the Wi-Fi network, as well as the receiving device, on which the media files will be visible afterwards. The difference between AirPlay and AirPlay 2 is that the latter adds some existing capabilities.
For example, AirPlay 2.0 allows multiple Apple devices to be synchronized. With the help of an iPhone connected to AirPlay 2, phone calls do not have to be interrupted during music streaming. Likewise, as a new feature, content can be conveniently controlled by Siri via an Av receiver AirPlay 2*.
Retrofit AirPlay 2 with adapter
If an older AV receiver does not have AirPlay 2, then suitable adapters provide a remedy. Apple TV is a proven method. This makes the connection of iPhone and AV receiver possible.
The connection takes place via the HDMI interface. Especially the amplifiers with many HDMI ports usually have an HDMI access in the front area. This makes a quick connection from the Apple TV possible.
Streaming protocol as a multi-room application of AV receivers
Wireless transmission systems form the basis for streaming music, listening to digital radio or selecting from thousands of stations on Internet radio to all rooms of a household.
To enjoy the listening pleasure of Apple’s Multiroom solution, a suitable speaker is required. One possible licensed provider in this area is Sonos with its high-quality speaker boxes.
