I guess the easiest way is to show you a picture:

For the upstairs family room, i have a Pioneer SC1227. Downstairs in the rec room I have an apple TV box. Even my Panasonic Bluray player can be streamed to. Right now for my media room, my Marantz AV7005 is not hooked up, or that would be in the list too.

so for example, I could play to my apple TV downstairs a Cheep Trick song by simply selecting is from my web browser and click on the play. You can make up play lists, edit them, play multiple sources at once.

or for a different interface, here is the ipad version of the app

Anthem: AVM60
Axiom: ADA1000, LFR1100, VP180, QS8, EP500, M3, M3comp
AudioSource: Amp One/A

Matt is describing a "push"; that is, he's accessing his NAS and telling it to send a stream to a particular device.

I was explaining a "pull" (in my last post); which was telling my receiver to go get a stream from someplace (in my case a NAS).

I tried out the Yamaha app on a Google device and it worked fine - I used my cheapo tablet to control the Yamaha and select the NAS, then browse my music folders and select an artist/album. Basically it was just like using the receiver's remote, but without the TV. It wasn't fancy, no cover art or anything, but I had easy and readable access to the music.

You guys are great. I really appreciate you taking the time to educate me.

Matt, thank you for the pictures. It looks like the Synology solution really works well for you.
