Airplay + Network Speaker

Not sure if this is the best place for this.

Besides the Denon Cocoon, anyone aware of a decent Airplay speaker that also streams over a network?

cheers.

RE: Airplay + Network Speaker

I was really impressed with my friends active speakers plugged into an Apple Airport Express - gives you flexibility on speakers.  I think he uses Audioengine A2s.  A little 'left field', I agree.

I like that idea too, but as far as I'm aware there's no network streaming option in terms of streaming direct from NAS with no need for the computer to be on.

I understand Apple's walled garden on formats, but why the ATV / AEx can't stream from a NAS with iTunes server dishing up apple music formats is beyond me.

RE: Airplay + Network Speaker

Twill - I think you've answered your own question.  I don't have *that* much music, so Airplay from my ithingy does me fine.  You could consider an ATV - version 1, bang in a 1TB drive, and operate via Remote?
