Turn a Raspberry Pi Into an AirPlay Receiver for Streaming Music in Your Living Room

The RaspPi will do one of three things on boot: connect to my home network, connect to a USB powered portable access point, or create an ad hoc network (ad hoc has had mixed results with iOS and Android devices). It will then start Shairport. Using a USB sound card it will output to a battery powered Lepai TA2020 amp and Dayton B652 speakers. The Rasp Pi and router are powered separately in its own case which will be Velcroed to the inside of the future case so I can remove it and connect it to a home stereo.

The router and Rasp Pi get about 4 hours running off 4 Amazonbasic AAs.
