There are certainly BluRay players with wireless capabilities. Don't know whether they'll do what you want.

Yes,thanks but i just wondered if an audio only device had wireless capability since its only for powered speakers so i can play cds I own and itunes content i have bought.

Why do you need it to be audio only if it works?

Good point,I dont I just need the price to be reasonable since it willl not be connected to a screen.

These days, many BluRay players are cheaper than most CD players.

There are a number of mini-bookshelf systems with built in CD and ipod dock. Most come with their own cheap passive speakers that you can just toss out and use your A5+s instead. Some even have pre-outs so you can use the built in amp in your speakers exclusively and bypass the receiver amp. Check out the Onkyo CS-445 and the Sony CMT MX500i.

I don't know of any compact systems that have airplay built in, but if you must have wireless, a $100 airport express is probably the most cost-effective add-on for adding airplay to an audio system. In fact, if you have the disk space to digitize all your CDs, you could hook up the Airport Express directly to your powered speakers and be done.
