Sound United, parent company of six of our most popular manufacturers (Denon, Heos by Denon, Marantz, Polk Audio, and Definitive Technology) has announced that all will support AirPlay 2, the upcoming version of the AirPlay wireless streaming protocol Apple announced last week.
According to info from Apple’s recent developers conference, AirPlay 2 is part of the new iOS 11 mobile operating system to be released this fall. It adds multiroom audio to AirPlay’s capabilities, so multiroom audio from compatible speakers will be controllable via iOS’s AirPlay controls or inside third-party apps.
The first Sound United products that’ll be compatible with AirPlay 2 will include A/V receivers and other audio products, with more to follow. Other brands we carry that will support AirPlay 2 include Bluesound, Bose, Bowers & Wilkins, and McIntosh.
Stay tuned for more info!
