Sonos virtual speaker for AirPlay upgrade to old speakers?

I’m newbie in Sonos, started from Connect:amp last year. Just added set of Playbar+Sub+2xPlay:1 I bought at bargain price - Beam was not powerful enough for my living room, I was waiting for next gen Playbar but decided for old one because of good offer.

None of my current devices is Airplay capable. I’m in Apple ecosystem and Airplay would be nice feature. I realize I can upgrade to AirPlay by adding One or Symfonisk speaker. Adding Symfonisk, limiting it’s loudness to 1% and grouping with Playbar - relatively expensive, power hungry, but should work.

I wonder if there is any plan to offer a “silent speaker” (no amp, no speaker) just for grouping and having AirPlay compatibility at older devices?

I seriously doubt it, especially as the IKEA speakers are $99 retail.
