For me, it's the built-in Pandora along with the remote app. It's wonderful to be able to sit on the couch, turn on my avr (Yamaha a720), and start listening to my Pandora stations. Close second would be airplay, so I can listen to my iTunes library.

+1

I love being able to play Pandora, change stations and adjust volumes with my smartphone from anywhere in the house.

I don't use the Airplay function.

I've got three. Spotify, airplay, and the DNLA feature. I can sit in my chair and have access to any music I can think of, all from my iPad/iPhone, including hi rez stuff on my computer. My new Pioneer 1124 can also do DSD files, having fun with that

In addition to Pandora and DLNA, I have been exploring commercial free Internet radio and just regular radio feeds from around the world. Traffic in Sydney, EDM from Berlin, random College stations, whatever from Iceland....
