Marantz intros 'world's first' AirPlay hi-fi

Apple streaming tech will cost you extra

The Marantz logo has been on Apple's AirPlay website ever since the Mac maker announced the new name for its media streaming tech at the start of September. It's no surprise, then, that the AV firm is releasing AirPlay-compatible kit, but now we know what and when.

Marantz Melody Media

The Melody Media box goes on sale later this month. It has a built in CD player, DAB+ and FM tuners a USB port and an Ethernet jack. It'll stream to Marantz's RX101 Bluetooth receiver, an otional extra.

From the outset, it will stream content from DLNA servers, but you'll have to wait until November for a firmware update to enable AirPlay. And you'll have to pay for it - Marantz wants an extra 40 quid for the new software on top of the £500-odd you'll have paid for the Melody Media.

Marantz will also bring AirPlay to its SR7005 AV Receiver, AV7005 AV Preamp and NA7004 Network Audio Player/Tuner. ®
