There is a newer version out now, the CDN301. AirPlay and spottily built in and a cheaper price point. Anyone got it?

Doubt it. If you check the features tab on the products page they promised music streaming services by future firmware update. Other units in their range, such as the RN500, got Spotify but this one didn't.

Thanks for including the link. I'd really like to see both Pandora and AirPlay added to the CD-N500 if they could. And a FFWD function. Why do they list Vtuner as a feature on the 301 but not the 500? I use Pandora on a Sony BluRay player in another room but don't have it on my stereo so it would be nice if they could add it. I liked the AirPlay feature on the R-N500 but the amp itself was low quality.
