I just want a solid connection to play Spotify on through my 4311ci, and be able to have remote control functionality. Could use soem help figuring out which is the best device, setup, configuration. Money is no object (well it is, because I'm not rich, but I dont care and doubt this will run over 400 bucks, no matter what), I just want the best possible functionality.
1) I dont want an iphone playing a spotify app (which i have) hardwired into my AVR, but only because I want to be able to use a remote control to change tracks.
2) The 4311 has airplay functionality, and it totally works with the iphone using spotify, and i can even use my android phone as a remote control using the denon app...but the wireless nature of airply is buggy, and annoying, and stops, pauses, cuts out occasionally (sad trombone wah wah wah wahhhhhh).
3) I'd like something like sonos/appletv/roku/boxee wired into my system, and use it almost exclusively to Play spotify.
I already have a P60GT50 which streams netflix, amazon and hulu, so unless there is a a major improvement in the new devices playback for these services, i think im covered in this regard. please weigh in if they are in fact considerably better though.
Has anyone already thought this through, does anyone have something similar already working for them?
