Android HIFI is an AirPlay receiver/server for audio playback. You can stream music to your Android device with it, from AirPlay clients, such as iTunes, iOS, etc.

Features:
- stream audio from AirPlay clients (itunes, iOS, ...)
- be able to adjust the delay, so that it is possible to play in sync with other AirPlay receivers, or sync with the video
- auto mute when there is an incoming call
- auto turn down the volume if your headset unplugged, or your Bluetooth device disconnected, to avoid noisy surprise
- run in the background as a service
- Google TV support (in testing stage)

Android-HIFI:

Apologies in advance if I'm being dense here; but when you said that this app functions as an AirPlay receiver/server, were you saying that this app has the ability to both receive and send audio? In short, does this app have the ability to stream audio to another AirPlay capable device? The reason I'm asking is this: I have sold/discarded/given away ALL of my Apple devices and replaced them with Android and/or other equivalent devices. However, even though I got rid of my Apple devices, I retained a large number of 3rd party manufactured accessories. Among these accessories are a pair of AirPlay speakers that have just been collecting dust since I went 'droid. So, using your app, would it be possible to use one of my Android devices to stream audio to my AirPlay speakers?

Thanks in advance for your time and consideration. Take care and have a good one!

Thank you,
Ed (Mister_Mxyzptlk)

I tried it out on my HTC Desire but it was very stuttered and the audio kept cutting in and out. After I paused iTunes, the music continued playing on the phone for a good 10 seconds before the stream stopped. I don't know if it's due to both the stream source (laptop with iTunes) and the phone are both on the same wireless network and it's congested, or if the Desire is simply too old to be able to do real time decoding of the stream. I'll play with it some more but I thought you might want to know. Let me know if you want a logcat or anything.

From what I saw, no. It is a receiver only (it is a server in the sense that the airtunes client, the player, connects to it and streams audio to it. It just waits for connections).

The reason I'm asking is this: I have sold/discarded/given away ALL of my Apple devices and replaced them with Android and/or other equivalent devices.

Try checking out Airfoil by Rogue Amoeba. The software runs on Windows, Mac OS, and even a CLI version of linux is available (although that might be just for the speakers). It supports streaming to Airplay enabled devices, including Android HIFI.

Not working on one X

Hi Android-HIFI,

App works like a charm on my xoom. installed it on the one x and it just says starting. It does not say "waiting for connection". My one x is stock.
Any reasons for this.

one thing though, the music gets out of sync within 5 minuites so you have to readjust.
