With AirPlay, Apple allowed iOS devices and iTunes on the Mac and Windows PCs to stream audio (and video) to AirPlay-enabled devices.. However, Apple has yet to include a feature in OS X that would allow you to stream all system audio to an AirPlay-compatible device.

There are thousands of applications out there that let you record audio. Some are swell for podcasting. Others can rip the audio right out of a YouTube video or suck the sound out of a Skype conversation so that you can listen to it at a later date. You could use any number of one-trick ponies to take care of the various audio chores in your life; or, if you're a savvy Mac user, you could whittle that number down to just one.
We’re suckers for apps that focus on simplicity and usefulness rather
than whiz-bang features that look cool in demos but have very little
practical utility. Rogue Amoeba’s Airfoil is one of those apps that we
couldn’t help but take a liking to right off the bat.
