I'm looking at Denon and Onkyo. Just came across smokin deal on a 5009 that I think i might jump on. The only thing that bugs me is lack of AirPlay

Is there a way to "add" AirPlay capability via an external box or something? Would the apple TV box give me the same features as having an AV with built in AirPlay or am I just way off base here.

Any help would be appreciated

Yep, the apple TV will give you airplay. Works quite well.

Nice! Thanks for the quick replies. So I would then just connect via hdmi to Avr and Hdmi out from AVR to projector and presto?
