Boise AV18 Streaming Media Center?

Good morning,

I was wondering if anyone has used an older system like mine which is the AV18 as a streaming media audio source.  I'd like to be able to use the system with like an Alexa, google nest, or even connect it to may laptop to stream music.  With no USB/HDMI or anything like that on the back am I just reaching too far? I do have a VS2 upconverter if that helps any.  

Thanks all!

Matthew

I made a guide showing people how to use their AV18 receiver with modern HDTV's and devices. From there you can connect in a wireless audio/video device. Some of them you can simply plug into your AV18 receiver if that device has the right connection. 

 

Hopefully this should help answer your question. Let us know what you end up doing 🙂
