Brillant! Works system-wide even on Mavericks. Given life into my old Xperia Play which now stays contacted to my hi-fi system. :)

It was never great but worse now... I've been using this for about a year now and it was never great, sometime choppy, sometime not. In the last few weeks the program unexpectedly quits after 10-20 minutes every time. Nothing on the phone has changed and the app hasn't even been updated. WTF? Can no one make a good airplay receiver app? I will pay good money for one that works.
