Any speaker set can be enabled with Airplay via a $100 Apple Airport Express & a $5 Aux-in cable. So the “goodness” of one of these speaker systems must be measured in terms of the stated price minus $105. For example, does the G-17 sound as good as $425?

... which begs the question: Why hasn’t anyone developed a cheap, simple AirPlay “dongle” that consists of nothing more than a WiFi antenna, a USB port (for configuration via a computer), and a stereo minijack? The Airport Express is overkill if used only for AirPlay, given that it is a WiFi router (with network storage and printing functions) in its own right.
