Step 12 – If you do not already have a DLNA/Air Play enabled music app on your android device, you will need to download one from the Play Store. In this How To, we use BubbleUPnP.

Step 13 – In your media app, you will need to ensure you tell it to play through the DCH-M225, rather than the local speaker/headphone jack. In BubbleUPnP, this is done by tapping on the 3 gray bars in the top-left corner, then tap “Local Renderer” and tapping on the “DCH-M225” to select it.

Step 14 – Go to your music library and when you play a song, it will play through the DCH-M225 and your speaker, rather than the android device.
