Not on iOS 9.1 and earlier. Also, the wifi isn't always "randomized"
Using "System Preferences" -> "Bluetooth" you should be able to add or "pair" the device in question as long as the device is in range and broadcasting a signal. You might need to turn the device off then on again, or tell it to "pair" or "repair" before it is visible from the MacBook.
I went to the Genius Bar to solve this. They did the standard procedure and the device paired. The explanation for why it was not working for me was that a Magic Keyboard will not pair while it is charging. I had the keyboard plugged into a USB port for charging at the time. To use or pair the keyboard, make sure it is unplugged.
I think Bluetooth will do. The volume can be controlled using the Siri remote. Also, it won't have the problem of sound lagging with AirPlay. The only problem is that the Apple TV doesn't have a disconnect option for the Bluetooth speakers (this is a problem if you are sharing the same speakers among your computer and your Apple TV). Once you have connected ...
Dang, finally figured it out after days of frustration with this. From the Airplay options when you swipe up from the bottom (whatever that little drawer thing is called), you can choose the BT speaker or iPad for the audio. Doesn't seem to be any other place to select this from though so it was not obvious.
