Denon and Marantz release AirPlay update for $49 (http://www.tuaw.com/2011/01/07/denon-and-marantz-release-airplay-update-for-49/)


Denon and Marantz announced that owners of select AV receiver models can download a highly anticipated AirPlay update. The update will let you stream video from your iOS 4.2 device or from your iTunes library on your PC or Mac. Receivers eligible for the update include,

* Denon AVR-4311CI
* Denon AVR-3311CI
* Denon AVR-991
* Denon AVR-A100
* Denon N7 Networked CD Receiver and 2.0 Channel Speaker System
* Marantz SR7005 A/V Receiver
* Marantz AV7005 A/V Preamplifier
* Marantz NA7004 Network Audio Player
* Marantz M-CR603 Networked CD Receiver

Denon and Marantz originally promised to deliver the update for free until November 7, but the company missed that mark and is now delivering the update for the full $49. Denon and Marantz are not the only AV company embracing AirPlay. Earlier this week, both Klipsch and Bowers & Wilkins announced AirPlay-compatible AV equipment.

Is it worth the upgrade? Anyone interested in this?
