I looked long and hard at this Amplifier and on paper it is very very good indeed, the features for the money are extremely impressive. However at the last moment, just before pressing the "buy" button I spotted the flaw.

There's no airplay. And for me on a new AV Amp that's going to last a few years that was a killer.

Instead I've purchased the Yamaha V773. slightly more expensive, but it had everything I needed and also a superb iPad / iPhone app.

I agree with the comment above. The lack of Airrplay is a real loss.
I presume the licensing is too expensive, but this will put a lot of customers off, myself included.

Those two people up their aren't too smart. The Onkyo NR-515 can be had for $300. That guy's Yamaha V773 costs over $700. So for that extra $400 dollars, he got... AirPlay. Everyone should understand that receivers shouldn't have AirPlay. They have clunky interfaces and hard to navigate menus. For only $100, they could have purchased an Apple TV which offers not only Audio AirPlay, but Video Airplay, all in a slick interface.

Lack of AirPlay is relevant but consider the cost differences of moving up and you might find a deal by just adding AirPlay via one of the Apple Airport Express blocks. This is how I used the Express:

The Onkyo Remote for apple or android
is quite good for adjusting some of the settings on the amp and has
an extra feature that allows you to stream any MP3's on your phone (mine's a note2) to
the 515 over your home network (DLNA). I found this to be a nice surprise and it
worked quite well.
