Reliable sources

Using AirPlay was seamless and easy, and it effortlessly integrated into iTunes without any fuss – as soon as the Ceol logs on to your network, it automatically links with iTunes on your computer and your iPhone. There was however the occasional glitch when the music would stutter for a split second. This may be unique to the test model I tried, but it’s something to look out for.

An iPod dock is included if AirPlay's £39 upgrade tariff chafes a bit

Verdict

Overall, the Denon Ceol is a very capable hi-fi quality system. While you don't need to have any Apple devices to take advantage of its music networking capabilities, the addition of AirPlay (albeit for a premium) makes it super-easy to take advantage of your computer-based music collection whether on you Mac or PC or directly from your iOS device. ®
