Denon AVR-4311CI Home Theater to gain AirPlay support
Denon announced their AVR-4311CI home theater back in April, but they updated their Product Details page with details for a “planned upgrade” – probably firmware – to provide the iTunes AirPlay functionality that was announced in Apple’s recent unveiling event.
The AVR-4311CI is a rather pricey home theater from Denon with 3D Blu-ray support and seven HDMI inputs, as well as Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio decoders. It has an Ethernet port that allows for networking, including Rhapsody, Napster, and Pandora support; Flickr streams; and pushing photos, music and videos to computers. This network connectivity is also what allows for the upcoming AirPlay compatibility, which lets iTunes stream music to the AVR-4311CI.
