How does watching streaming video on receiver with air play compare picture quality wise vs using a very good hd laptop with hdmi connected to tv? Trying to decide what av reciever to buy:

My needs/setup:
Room size 16' X 19'
Have a 60" Sharp lc60LE640u TV (no 3D)- is ARC capable according to specs; also has several smart apps
Sharp tv has very low sound; tried a cheap soundbar (Vizio VSB200)-wasn't happy
Panny DMP-220 Bluray player
Directv HD DVR

Already have some older speakers: HSU Subwoofer STF-1 and two HSU ventriloquist VT254 satellite speakers and Polk CS101 center channel speaker.

I am hearing impaired in higher frequencies and am just looking primarily for a sound boost and clarity. A lot of suggestions for Denon 1612 or 1613.
Or is that over kill for my needs. Not sure i need 5.1 maybe 3.1.

Apple has only licensed "audio" streaming on AVRs that feature Airplay, rather you would need to add an Apple TV for "video" streaming. Also the 1912 is the lowest level XX12 model with Airplay, while the 1613 is the lowest level XX13 model.

it will compare very unfavorably, as you cannot stream video directly to any avr via airplay... wink.gif
