Why not just use an Apple TV if you're wanting airplay?

yes if you want airplay and mostly audio, apple tv is your best option. a raspberrypi running xbmc is cheaper, but it would require more work and maintenance. an appletv will "just work"

Like Airplay?
What home theatre system do you have? Is it compatible with Airplay? Or is it solely DLNA?
If you're looking for something that is a DLNA server, try Twonky. It's roughly a $27 download.
