The craze for AirPlay, which lets you stream music wirelessly wherever you are is coming to Denon, which announced an upgrade of Apple’s new AirPlay streaming audio system to three of its receiver models (the AVRA100, AVR-3311 and AVR-4311) at CES.

Music lovers will now be liberated from the usual constraints of cables surrounding conventional audio products as the three receivers cater for wireless streaming of music directly from the iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch, or use the Apple Remote app to control their iTunes library and stream audio from their Mac or PC.
The upgrade, which is available via direct download, will cost a nominal fee of $60.
The recent AirPlay release from Apple, which requires the latest iOS 4.2 and iTunes 10.1, delivers true ‘music anywhere’ enjoyment. It not only streams pure digital audio, but also sends the metadata to enable display of artist and song info as well as album art.
Multiple AirPlay devices can be used throughout the home for a simple and elegant multi-room audio solution. AirPlay works over Wi-Fi or an Ethernet connection or a combination of both. So you can stream music directly from your home network via an Ethernet port or connect wirelessly.
