    I am looking for a nice airplay speaker setup. Something I can move around the house as needed. What are the best options out there right now?

    Fyi, Most iPhone 4s devices crash after a few minutes when steaming over airplay.

    I don't know about "most," but my iPhone has never crashed yet while using AirPlay. I use it to stream Pandora, SHOUTcast, YouTube and other assorted apps.

    Yeah, perhaps most was overstating, I don't know for sure. But the issue is rampant. There's 11 page threads on Apple support addressing this, and Engadget had a piece on it. Specifically related to the Zepplin Air but seems like all AirPlay devices are affected. Mine certainly are.

    Sorry to hijack. The Zep supposed to be a killer device for older phones that can connect to it reliably.

    I have AirPlay on my Denon amp and it's so inconsistent it's unreal. I have no idea what's up with it but it's not just a phone issue as iTunes has the same issue. It also make no difference if I switch from my Denon amp to the boxee boxes. It's a great idea but it's so unreliable. I have a hardwired network through out the house i know it's not a signal problem. But when it does Work it's nice.
