A lot of people regret the disappearance of the Roku Soundbridge and the Logitech Squeezebox families of audio streamers from the market. There's always Sonos, but at that price...

I just heard about the Netgear Powerline Music Extender XAUB2511:

It connects to your LAN via Ethernet at one end, and at the other end it converts the packets to USB and finally to RCA audio plugs.

I don't know if it's available yet in Canada... OK, it's $131 at NCIX.

Nice device, seems to be Airplay only, pity they didn't make it a UPnP/DLNA audio renderer too & have all your bases covered.

No, it's not just for iOS devices:

Doesn't seem to be DLNA compliant, though.
