Sorry, I can't help directly with the choice of speaker switches since I've never used any.

However, bear in mind that you should use two different Audyssey calibrations: it'll be different for different speakers.

D+M equipment, including the AV8801, can save and restore their internal settings if you use the Web interface, so you could save the settings after calibrating each speaker set, then restore the appropriate one when changing between speakers. Unfortunately, however, that takes about 10 minutes or so, which might be longer than you're willing to wait.

There are a number of Android apps to include DoubleTwist - MagicPlay which I've used with a Samsung GS3 to Airplay audio to the AVR.

Hi. If you are rooted "Allstream" works really well and is simple. On my GS4, I can stream any music app (G Music, Pandora, Amazon, etc) using either Airplay or DLNA. Quality is better than bluetooth as well. There are some other apps that do video as well, but I have not tried those because I use my BR player for that. Regards.

The only reason I am interested in this is so that I can play youtube music for the kids every once in a while. at the moment I have to go get an iPhone to do that LOL... So quality of sound is really of no concern - I only care about functionality. The iPhone/Airplay is so simple I am shocked Android doesn't have something similar. Any other suggestions that do not require rooting the phone?

Thanks!

Question for anyone who can help. I was finishing Schindler's List tonight and the audio went completely silent. It occured when the survivors were walking over the hill and it changed from black and white to color. I watched in silence to the end credits. Paused the movie and it didn't help. I FF a few seconds and the audio came back on. I then rewatched the scene and it did not repeat. Is this just a random dropout on a defective disc or is it something with the Oppo or Marantz? I have never had this happen before. Thanks for your help.

I have never had that happen on a disk, but have had similar experiences when watching my DTV DVR's. I think it is probably random, and unless it happens often, you should not be concerned.
