I'm new to this so I apologise for what might be a obvious answer.
I'm looking to put my first system together, it will be my main source of music, plus used for cinema surround when watching blu rays. I've already decided on B&W MT-50 speakers and a Panasonic DMP-BDT220 blu ray player.
Now for the item that has given me sleepless nights.....the AV Receiver
I had initially decided on the Yamaha RX-V473, then decided the RX-V673 would be a better option. Having looked on-line, for similar money I could buy a Yamaha RX-A810 £449, or pay a extra £400 for the Yamaha RX-A820 £719 [with Airplay] or Yamaha RX-A2010 £849 [without Airplay]. Here's my stumbling point, I wish to stream my music wireless from my iphone 4 and MacBook Pro. I know the current models above have Airplay, but neither the RV-A810 or RX-A2010 offer this feature. Should I choose the RX-A810 or RX-A2010 are there ways of streaming my music wireless? Would a Apple Airport Express be a good stable option? Are the RX-A820 and RX-A2010 worth the extra £300/£400? I have a maximum budget of £850.
I'd really appreciate your advice.
