This is the list of compatible speakers with AirPlay 2 and they are not cheap

AirPlay 2 was launched yesterday along with the update to iOS 11.4 . This is a great novelty that includes improvements such as the ability to play a song on several speakers at once . Even that it is synchronized to offer a perfect experience.

This is an Apple protocol that is open to developers, so any manufacturer can include it in their speakers . Apple has teamed up with a large number of brands, but all are companies that manufacture high-end speakers. So the price will not be cheap.

Complete list of compatible speakers with AirPlay 2

After the departure of official AirPlay 2 thanks to the update of iOS 11.4, Apple has published on its website the complete list of compatible devices with its new wireless protocol headed by the HomePod. This list is within the compatibility with HomeKit, since everything will be managed from the Casa app that we have on the iPhone or iPad.

The list is varied and includes devices from a large number of brands:

  • HomePod
  • Beoplay A6
  • Beoplay A9 mk2
  • Beoplay M3
  • BeoSound 1
  • BeoSound 2
  • BeoSound 35
  • BeoSound Core
  • BeoSound Essence mk2
  • BeoVision Eclipse (audio only)
  • Denon AVR-X3500H
  • Denon AVR-X4500H
  • Denon AVR-X6500H
  • Zipp by Libratone

As we can see, it is a long list, but all brands produce high-end speakers . Most have announced their compatibility, so you'll have to wait for a software update to enjoy AirPlay 2.

The cheapest option on the list is the Sonos One , which can be purchased for around 200 euros. They are not cheap options, but we may see other more affordable options over time. Perhaps the rumored HomePod cheap .

Do you have any of the speakers on the list or are you going to buy one?
