The mono version would have a mounting bolt for the threaded hole on the back of the M3's/Algonquins.

Thanks guys! This really would be useful to me. The new house is completely finished, and it will be a pain to run speaker wires to the kitchen and back deck. It will convert my M3's into true "plug 'n play" speakers. Super high quality "wireless" sound, anywhere I want to place them!

The only other thing I would add would be a 1/8" input just in case I take them somewhere without wifi, OR, someone comes over with a non-apple product.

These suggestions are awesome; thanks to everyone who is weighing in!

So is the consensus that we need to be able to dock music players to the speakers? Rather than the simplicity of something along the lines of Airplay / Android's Player where you can whip out your phone or tablet, select a playlist, set it to play on these particular speakers, and then put your phone / tablet away again?

I think a "dock" is unnecessary.

However, if it doesn't add appreciably to the cost or complexity, I think that having a 1/8" analog input jack in addition to the Airplay and/or Bluetooth might make the device applicable to more applications and sources.

Or maybe that's already covered by the Audiobytes.

I have an Android phone, an iPad and PC's. If the device ONLY had Airplay, I probably wouldn't buy it since I'm not running an Apple router at my house. Ken/others: isn't it true that you need the Airplay/Airport router or an Apple TV to make this scenario work? That is, an iPhone, iPod or iPad wouldn't be enough to stream music to speakers like this, right?

You do NOT need an Apple router to use an Airplay receiver such as one that would be found in this, in Denon/Marantz receivers, or in point of fact an Apple TV.

These speakers would have the Airplay receiver built into them and all you would need would be an Airplay-enabled source.
