Apple AirPlay

Apple AirPlay is a service that lets you stream music around your home over wireless networks. The technology will be integrated in to a number of devices such as speaker docks, AV receivers and stereo systems.

Say you have one set of speakers in your bedroom, one in the office, and one in the living room. For the ultimate sonic panorama, you can stream your tunes to more than one room simultaneously, so you’ll never lose the beat, no matter where you are in the house. Just select “Multiple Speakers” from the speaker pulldown menu in iTunes. AirPlay works over Wi-Fi or an Ethernet connection, or a combination of both. So you can stream music directly from your home network if you’re near an Ethernet port or connect wirelessly if you’re not.

Companies who will be making compatible products include…
* Denon
* Marantz
* Bowers & Wilkins
* iHome

If you have an iPhone or an iPod touch, you can also download a remote control app allowing you to control the music from those devices.
