Streaming I tunes through home theater system Help!



I have a Yamaha RX-A700 in a centrally located closet with the Dish receiver and dvd player running through it. This controls the living room speakers in zone 1 and the outside speakers in zone 2. I want to stream itunes to it but have no idea how. Apple tv, bluetooth, apple airport? Suggestions please!! TIA

I have a port I just hook my phone to and can play any song on it thru the speakers.

If the speakers play the sound for the TV, I recommend Apple TV. I just did it and it's working great. Can stream itunes or mirror the phone. Avoids the docking goofiness.

Just use the front port and hook to your phone. Some of the receivers come with airplay built in, just hook the receiver to your network and check on ITunes on your computer and see if an extra speaker shows up to connect to.

Also, some of those receivers DO NOT PLAY DIGITAL to the 2nd zone, only analog.

If you can play your TV audio through your stereo system then yes, you can stream itunes through your TV with an AppleTV. That's movies, your music, everything.

That's what we use and love it.

You buy a 99$ airport express and you can either connect to it to your existing wireless system or make it nothing but a music streaming device. Assuming you have iphone or ipad etc. or even itunes you just select the airplay button and click airport express and it will stream the music, it has an audio out port to connect to the receiver this is how mine is set up great for playing music wirelessly and changing songs while outside.

What do you hook the apple tv up to? I have one of those jacks to connect my phone to the receiver but that sucks. You have to walk to the closet to changes songs. I want to be able to control it from another room with my phone or some other remote/device.

If you receiver supports airplay, or you get that extender, your receiver magically shows up on your phone and you can play straight to it from outside. Volume, song selections, playlists, etc...
