A Wi-Fi network is needed because todays audio visual products need to talk to each other to work to their full capacity. Smart TVs let you enjoy apps, surf the web and stream internet videos from the comfort of your couch, but you need a stable home Wi-Fi network to do so. Other devices such as the Denon receivers have an app that you download to your tablet or smart phone and then stream music straight to the device from anywhere in the house that there is Wi-Fi signal. Control your multi room audio system from your smart device and choose what when and where you listen to your music.
