    AirConnect - "Use these applications to add AirPlay capabilities to Chromecast and UPnP (like Sonos) players, to make them appear as AirPlay devices. AirConnect can run on any machine that has access to your local network (Windows, MacOS, Linux -x86, x64 and ARM, Solaris and FreeBSD). It does not need to be on your main computer. (For example, a Raspberry Pi works well). It will detect UPnP/Sonos/Chromecast players, create as many virtual AirPlay devices as needed, and act as a bridge/proxy between AirPlay clients (iPhone, iPad, iTunes, MacOS, AirFoil ...) and the real UPnP/Sonos/Chromecast players."

    I've installed AirConnect on my Pi and it's working great so far. I can even pause and stop playback from my Home Mini. (Skipping doesn't seem to work). Even groups work. (For those interested, it should also support other devices like older Sonos speakers).
