Have not used them myself but Onkyo has the DS-A5 docking station. I should think there are others out there as well.

Hello,
Personally I would just get a $99 Apple TV. My Denon AVR-4520CI has AirPlay, but I never use it. Especially with HBO GO and Max GO support Airplay, the Apple TV makes that much more sense as most AVR's that offer AirPlay and most Docking Stations only support audio.
Cheers,
JJ

It's nice that the 5009 is I-phone ready. Here's a link to the section in the owners manual.

It's in the "controlling other componets" section. Hope this helps.
Hello,
The problem is that most likely it only supports the audio portion. While that is quite convenient, being able to stream video like from HBO GO is amazing as it offers every single episode from every TV Series that have ever aired it utterly trounces what is offered from HBO On Demand. AirPlay in an AVR really is somewhat meaningless when for $99 you can get an Apple TV which offers far more functionality.
Best,
Jack

If the docking station uses the same connector (30 pin or lightning) as the iPhone 5 it should work fine.
If it uses Bluetooth it should work fine.
