jdsmoothie - Thanks for the suggestion of holding down the power button, but unfortunately it didn't work. Unplugging for a few seconds and then re-plugging the power cord does. This suggests to me that the problem is not with iTunes, the Mac, or the network, but with the Denon or the Denon software, but I don't have any diagnostic tools to confirm this.
It's also odd (but repeatable) that the Denon doesn't play music for more than 1/2 hour or so before becoming unreachable by iTunes (maybe a comment on my choices) but as I said, the receiver is still on the network, controllable by the iPad, and able to reach Denon via Internet to check for updates. The music simply stops and although the airplay icon shows the Denon, when I click on the icon for status the Denon is grayed out as unreachable / unusable.
It would be nice if Denon would acknowledge that this is a problem for at least some owners and take steps to correct it or at a minimum issue a bulletin on how to get around the problem.
