I have a machine with Ubuntu installed and simple speakers connected to this machine via cable. I want to be able to cast music on this machine via my iPhone. Is it possible? What software should I use?

1@Rinzwind As i understood the question in the link is about airplay-powered speakers and the problem is about to cast from ubuntu to speakers. I have different problem: i have simple speakers which connected to ubuntu mahine with cable and i want cast from iphone to this ubuntu machine.– mirtMay 30, 2017 at 13:38
Simply pairing your Ubuntu machine and iPhone over Bluetooth does the trick.– FazilJun 17, 2017 at 20:17
Another alternative would be
you can use this open source software
./configure make ./shairport -a 'My Shairport Name'
3Shairport is no longer maintained since July 2014. Do you know other opensource alternatives ?– SebMaFeb 27, 2019 at 22:42
shairport-sync is the currently maintained fork of shairport– pfychDec 29, 2019 at 12:35
