    I would like to stream Apple Music to stream music and Overcast to stream podcasts from my iPhone 6S to my stereo, and use its speaker setup to listen to music. Is there any way to use a second iPhone (a 4S) as the receiver hooked up to the stereo as a receiver? Would like to use Wi-fi, not Bluetooth. I guess I am looking for an app that would create an Apple Music compatible Chromecast-like device.

    I want to stream from my 6S to maintain the ability to wander around and maintain the music stream, control volume, switch songs, etc. Otherwise I know I could plug my phone into an AUX input on the stereo receiver.

    If you don't know of an app but can recommend a (reseasonably priced) device to hook up to the receiver, please let me know. I don't want to invest in a Sonos, Bluetooth speakers, etc.

    Other than plugging it in the aux which you already know- I would suggest a reasonably priced bluetooth speaker- there are many that won't break the bank- Good luck

    I just plug in to my stereo tuner and play my music on my surround system.

    Thanks for the reply.

    I can do that but would like to enjoy music from the speakers on my porch, controlling the music while on the porch, without having to get up and go to the receiver in the living room. Same from my dining room.

    You can do this if you get a Raspberry PI
