You’ve probably done this at least once in your life: You’re in a place where there’s music, whether it’s a gym playing stuff you don’t like, or a club DJ playing a set that really blows, or a hotel lobby with a pianist that could kill by boredom, and like some sort of Borg-Human hybrid, you try and will the music to change without doing anything. You stare at that set of speakers hanging at the corner of the gym, glare at that DJ who’s making your ears hurt, and gaze into the eyes of that pianist and try to send your thoughts in order to change the music that’s playing. Of course, it didn’t work, but the little kid in all of us just had to try. Well, good news. With the Denon AirPlay-enabled AVR-2312CI, we’ll have the closest thing to the Borg’s cybernetic telepathy, and it’ll be able to control the gadgets in our house!
The AVR-2312CI is one of the new IN-Command series of receivers from Denon, which aim to give you command of your digital entertainment! It is equipped with some of the best audio and video technology, both hardware and software-wise, in order to set the new standard in 3D, Blu-ray, game console, and many more! It has HDMI v1.4a, the most cutting-edge multiple high resolution audio formats and video systems, seven discrete 105-watt channels of equal power, dual subwoofer outputs, digital network audio photo streaming capabilities, and many more, all set to turn your networked home entertainment system into one straight out of Sci-Fi movies.
And while that’s already good enough for this next-generation machine, what’ll really get your gears turning is AirPlay, the technology that allows you to control the music that the AVR-2312CI plays, and in addition, send new music for it to play, through the Wi-Fi network, without actually touching it. You know, just like cybernetic telepathy! This one, however, is not there just yet, but it’s pretty close, because all you need to do is have an AirPlay-compatible iPod or iPhone, and voila, your music library is now ready to play! Not only that, it will also allow you to stream online digital content from practically all the music streaming services like Pandora, SiriusXM Radio and many others as well, to your AVR-2312CI.
Just imagine, being able to come home and instantly send your newest playlist to your home’s audio system, so you can listen to your latest tunes while you settle down, whether it’s by changing clothes and opening a cold one before dinner, or heading straight to the workout room to begin your fitness routine, all without ever needing to go to the living room to dock your iOS device.
Imagine suddenly receiving friends and relatives and being able to, on a whim, order the AVR-2312CI to play upbeat and lively music, just by sliding your thumb over the controls. Imagine being able to change the music to reflect you and your guests’ preferences, without ever leaving the living room where you guys are playing video games, or holding your club meeting, or just chatting about, and even giving them the chance to send their own music using their own iOS devices, all ala-cybernetic telepathy style. It’s practically a childhood dream, come true.
