Hi,

I have a Denon AVR-1612. Since it's not "Airplay ready", is there any other easy and cheap options to control my itunes library (stored on my PC) remotely using an iphone or ipad for the music to play via the receiver?

In other words, PC is in a different room. Receiver is in the leaving room, connected to TV, cable, PS3 and 5.1 speakers. I would like to play itunes library via the receiver in the leaving room.

As you can see, I dont have much knowledge in audio...

Thanks!

Simon

Airport Express

These refurbs are a good deal although they are the prior model:

You could also check craigslist to see if you can buy one locally.

Also consider an Apple TV as well.
