Ipod to Zepplin connection

Hi I wonder if anyone can help. I've got a B&W Zepplin (fantastic) but was annoyed that they have brought out a new one with an air play facility and upped the price to a whopping £500. Is there a bolt on gizmo that could be placed in the zepplin dock and be communicated with via my iPod touch wifi?

Hi
An apple airport express will do the trick
I picked one up for around £80 a few weeks back

You can use a 3.5mm stereo to stereo cable or a Optical mini jack cable a decent short cable will set you back another £5ish

Why are you annoyed?

Streaming developments are inevitable and technology advances rapidly. Perhaps you should have considered a Sonos S5 as a viable alternative.

My annoyance is not advancements in technology, it's that B&W could have brought out an upgrade for the original Zeppelin as it's not beyond the wit-of-man to design similar functionality to plug into the dock the achieve the same results.
