Interesting piece on an recently published hack to enable AirPlay on Sonos:

The hack covers both the AirPlay software server, and a connector that
enables hand-off of the bitstream to Sonos.

It would appear that this would be adaptable to the SB server. Perhaps
all that's needed is for the stream to be encoded, be available at a
local stream URL, and optionally hit the SB server API to initiate
playback.

I think it can already be done through the SBT server. I can certainly do it on the Vortexbox.Have tried it but don't really need it.

Corelli45, thanks for the link, always useful to have access to other AirPlay implementations in case one wants to try to integrate it with LMS/Squeezebox.

No problem.
