Pioneer has announced the first AirPlay enabled receiver “VXS-1021-K”. It allows user to stream music from their iOS device to the receiver. The Pioneer will put the album art and music information on your screen.
One of the most exciting new features of the VSX-1021-K is AirPlay. With AirPlay you can stream music from iTunes to the VSX-1021-K and play it through your home theater system. Simply connect the receiver to your home network via Ethernet or Pioneer’s optional wireless adapter (AS-WL300) and it instantly becomes the hub for playback of your iTunes music from your connected Apple device or networked computer.
You can even use the receiver to view metadata including song title, artist as well as album art on a connected display. Download Apple’s free “Remote” application and use your Apple device as a remote control. With AirPlay, there’s really no reason why your iTunes music has to be restricted to your computer!
You can Pre-order the Pioneer XS-1021-K from Amazon for $549.
