    The AirPlay active speakers? The plethora of AirPlay receivers?

    Denon and Marantz have a couple of receivers.

    Where is B&W? Where is the flood of devices?

    hold your horses, they are coming, airplay has only just been (officially) launched. Remember the iPhone 4 no accessories specific to the iphone 4 for weeks/months, same with the ipad and ipods, it takes time for these things to enter the market

    I am curious how it will support multiple speakers like the site claims. Right now Airplay only allows you to choose one at a time (I can't play to my express and AppleTV at the same time). Also waiting on the price?

    I'm assuming if you want multiple speakers at the same time, you would need to push the music from iTunes (which supports multiple speakers already) instead of from an iDevice.

    Yes, airplay needs expanded features to really take on sonos. In itunes you can play on multiple speakers but not from your iphone. This was reported to be allowed in a pre-release version but was removed.

    Airplay should also see other mac computers as devices and allow you to stream other media besides itunes (like airfoil does) to your devices.

    I think apple still has their work cut out from them if they want to really compete with sonos.

    Ewwwww.....Bose. I just got my father-in-law to ditch his Bose cube system in favor of an in-wall system. He's gonna crap his pants when he hears the difference.

    Bose is terrible. They are great at marketing and great at making people believe they are number 1, but they are the Dell of the audio world. A well known name, but not a good product.

    I remember when I worked at Circuit City we had bose surrounds and kef surrounds and all the people coming in after bose left with kefs instead.

    Well, when all is said and done, he'll be sporting Speakercraft AIM series in-walls and a Definitive Technologies Supercube III Subwoofer.

    Anybody had any experience with the Denon or Marantz AirPlay speakers. I am really in the market for AirPlay speakers. Even a link?
