Airplay with no network?

I'm trying to figure out if its possible for me to incorporate airplay into my stereo system in my garage. My wifi in the house has already been extended with an airport express, and even still my connection in the garage is intermittent at best. With that being said, is there any type of device that will allow me to have airplay on an old stereo receiver?

I seem to remember a few months ago hearing about an update to airplay ("airplay direct") that would not require the devices to be connected to a local network in order for airplay to function. This would be perfect.

Bluetooth ... There are some receiver around which should be ale to be connected to you existing system. Was it Sony, Onkyo or Aiwa ?
But it would require Bluetooth if you don't want local network.
