Yamaha RX-V733 AV Receiver Connects to Roon via Airplay

(Lloyd Borrett) #1

Had a win yesterday.

I have a Yamaha RX-V733 AV Receiver, which is the heart of my 5.1 channel Audio Visual system in the lounge room. It has a Burr-Brown 192/24 bit DAC inside, plus it’s connected onto my network.

Now I’ve never used any of the network features of this receiver, but supposedly it could find my NAS, play Internet radio, and support Apple Airplay. So I wondered, could I connect Roon to the RX-V733 and send my music to the receiver under Roon control.

Well sure enough Roon was reporting that it could see the RX-V773 as an Airplay device. A few seconds later, it was working.

Okay, so the stereo sound on the AV system isn’t fantastic, but it will do. Thus I now have four Roon connected sound systems. Just my vintage stereo Hi-Fi setup and kitchen system yet to be Roon connected.

I just noticed my Marantz SR6008 is visible as an AirPlay device now too. I’m going to check it out later this morning. Pretty fortuitous because my Mytek Brooklyn DAC is on the fritz.
