    Hi folks, I just bought a Marantz SR-7007, and I'd like to set it up for AirPlay use. Does anyone know how to? I am unfortunately quite clueless. I know I need to plug in a wireless device to the Marantz, via Ethernet. That I get. Do I need a router, or an access point? What else do I need?

    Thanks!

    Hi, I have Marantz 7007 connected via powerline adapter to my home network. I have two access points active to cover whole house, both connected to the same network. AirPlay works fine with iDevices and iTunes.
    You have some info aboth how to make it working on page 73 of the Marantz manual.

    Cheers for the answer, apolkowski. However my house has absolutely no wired internet - everything is wireless. I have 3 separate access points in the house, but even then, 2 are basically relays for the primary access point.

    Would it possible for me to do either of these:
    a) router, joining the existing access point's networks, then sending ethernet out?
    b) Do access points have ethernet out capability? That way I can extend my wireless coverage, while at the same time connecting the AirPlay into the system.

    An AirPort express would do the trick, it also has AirPlay and could be setup as a second zone audio source.

    Which access point do you have?

    Before I decided to install powerline adapters, I had Linksys access point working in bridge mode. My amplifier and XBOX were connected to it via a small switch. So the main access point was spreading WIFI signal around the house and Linksys was working as a WIFI "receiver".

    Hey folks - does anyone know if I need any special software to make this Marantz SR7007 AirPlay arrangement work? Or does it just work with iOS/Mac OS's built in iTunes? What AV input should I set on my Marantz unit?

    If it's on the network any AirPlay should be able to stream to it. Try iTunes.

    It has to be switched ON. If it is in standby mode iDevices do not see it.
