Burgess only wanted the wireless music streaming capability of AirPlay and he didn’t care about the video. His solution is a Rasberry Pi and a USB WiFi adaptor. The process itself is really simple. Once you get the WiFi set up, you just need to install a few things to get AirPlay functionality working and add iOS 6 support. Once you’re done, you’ve essentially created a tiny Airport Express where you can send music from your iPhone to your stereo wirelessly. Burgess points out the sound quality isn’t fantastic, but it’s totally functional and a cheap solution. Head over to Burgess’ site for the full guide.
