I tried several solutions to stream music from my mac to my audio system: via the build in streaming solution of my TV, WD TV Live and an Bluetooth Adapter. But there have always been some problems with not working firmware/software, bad connections, bad nearly unusable app GUIs (I look at you PlugPlayer), complicated usability of hardware/software. All of the above solutions just sucked.

Now I use Airfoil, and have my old iPhone 3G (I don't use it anymore) connected to the audio system. This is a killer solution. Just install Airfoil on your mac and your iPhone and you are ready to stream. No need for Airplay or Airfoil enabled hardware systems. You just connect your iPhone to what ever hardware you like.

Airfoil lets you stream to multiple targets. Plus, you can stream audio from one single app (rdio in my case), but still play the audio from all other apps and the system sounds on your mac.

I give Airfoil five stars, because it is the most practicable solution I can think of, it didn't fail a single time in several months, it looks great (even sends the album art from the rdio desktop app to the iPhone) and because I'm so very happy with it!

I got this app through MacHeist3 and like it alot - especially the news-style-GUI!

I think it has high potential on the RSS-reader market - but, the developer still has some work to do. The devleloper has to hunt down some more bugs (e.g. mark fresh articles doesn't work every time), that stop me from using the app every day. I don't use other RSS-readers because I don't like the GUIs they have. Besides the bugs, the app needs a few more features (show number of unread articles of active page, show number of all unread articles, mark all articles gray, ...) to make me really happy.

But I think the developer gets tons of feature requests and bug reports this days (after MacHeist3) and I'm sure he will deliver a really great app with the next updates.
