I have been searching around trying to pick the right reciever. I have attempted to search and not found the answer that I am actually looking for. The Sony 1030 and da1800 have wifi and Bluetooth built in... got it...I like the idea if this feature to a point, but I can only find information supporting that you can play Internet radio, or stream from a portable device to the unit. I am looking to use the wifi or Bluetooth to play/pass audio to wifi or Bluetooth speakers (from whatever source, mostly AirPlay). I have 7.1 in living room, but want audio (and it would be awesome to send video to smart tv with wifi too??????) in other rooms on other levels of the house. So with these models, am I able to purchase quality wifi or Bluetooth speakers (not wireless, powered with cord) and play TO THEM from the Sony built in wireless? If not, than I can go back to looking at denon 1913 or Manarantz 5007 etc. but if the Sony does have the ability I am ready to buy! Insight on the ability to relay video to wifi tvs would be greatly appreciated as well

AFAIK the built in wifi is to "receive" not "send".
