A generic speaker icon shows up for my AirPlay device rather than an icon depicting the actual device [closed]

I have an official 3rd-party AirPlay speaker. Why does audio|acacia show a generic speaker icon rather than an icon depecting the actual device?

This is because audio|acacia does not yet know what type of AirPlay device it is, so a generic speaker is shown instead.

-For official 3rd-Party AirPlay devices that show as a generic speaker, please submit a bug report.
-For unofficial 3rd-party AirPlay devices (i.e. XBMC, Shairport, etc.) a generic speaker icon will always be shown since these are not officially supported nor recommended.
