AirPlay on my Raspberry Pi

AirPlay audio only on the Raspberry Pi

Airplay¬†(or in previous revisions from apple this protocol was called “AirTunes”) audio is the ability to transmit audio from your smartphone device (The Apple I-phone does this natively and android users can actually download a plugin protocol for this) to another device which is hooked to a home stereo system.
