Are there any current options available for airplay speakers? I mainly just want to play music from my home macbook or iphone to different rooms in the house.

Short answer, not yet.

Lot's of new things have been announced but haven't seen them in stores yet. Klipsch has some coming, iHome has a nice speaker coming. Give it 6 months and there should be multiple options.

Right now your best option would be an airport express connected to some powered pc speakers.

most of them were announced at CES, so only a week or so ago.

really the only thing out now is the few receivers that offer it as a paid upgrade.

Cant wait for this to become a common thing....I have 5 AEs and an ATV setup at a house that gives me sound (and networking) from the back fence to the front room, including 2 sheds and a spa area.

Its fantastic to just control it all with the iPad.
