Not possible. The only way that comes close to this is to have the airport connected to an AUX input on the receiver and switch input sources. FYI, I find that with all the streaming options (e.g., tunein radio) plus having ripped all my music into iTunes that I don't much use the receiver except as an amplifier for airport streams.

That's a shame as we have a lot of vinyl that is played on the hifi that we would like to stream around the house. By "not possible" I suppose you mean "no-one makes it" as it is not rocket science.

Remember that the airport receives a digital signal from iTunes (or airfoil). The output from your stereo is analog. I've seen (but have no experience with) devices that rip vinyl on to your digital media library.
A really strange thing to try would be to connect the headphone output jack of your stereo to the microphone jack on your laptop. Then use airfoil to grab this signal and send it to the airport. It might wor. Airfoil may even have software to grab this and digitize it and save on your digital library

CB has pretty much stated the facts on this. However, it may still be possible to stream from your Hi-Fi device if it is AirPlay-enabled to an AirPlay Speaker (AirPort Express or Apple TV). What is the make & model of this Hi-Fi device?
AirPlay-enabled devices are currently rare and have only been made available from a limited number of manufacturers within the last year or two.
AirPlay is basically Apple's implementation of the DLNA standards, but they are not directly interchangeable with DLNA devices. As a minimum, streaming audio or video or both would require both a DLNA server (for Apple, that would be iTunes) and a DLNA client (for Apple, that would be an AirPlay Speaker).
If you Hi-Fi is not AirPlay-enabled, you may want to look into a wireless speaker solution. These tend to rely on Bluetooth technology, which again, may not be compatible with your audio gear.

Does the new version of AirPlay (or AirPlay speakers) support DLNA?
