This will not accomplish the objective. AirPlay requires you to plug an Airport Express into an ELECTRICAL OUTLET near receiver/speakers, then connect the Airport Express to those speakers/receiver. For anyone that doesn't mind simply moving their MACBOOK or iPOD near the speakers/receiver, can accomplish this very easily w/o purchasing the Airport Express.

You could also go with a pair of wireless speakers or with a wireless speaker kit from this company. They also have a line-level audio transmitter that you can hook up to your Dish network receiver.
