Denon and Marantz, are closely aligned companies, who merged in 2002 to form D+M Group. The corporation, which had previously acquired many smaller audio brands, was purchased by Sound United in 2017, which brought it under the same roof as Polk Audio and Boston Acoustics.

Denon and Marantz announced their plan to bring Airplay 2 to 29 components, adding up with the Apple’s rolling list of compatible products. None of the Audio company provided details about the launch, although today’s releases serve as evidence that works on AirPlay 2 software is well underway.
