    Anyone out there using Airport Express w/ AirTunes to wirelessly stream music from your mac to the HiFi?

    I just got the HiFi free (well, figuratively speaking- I used my AmEx reward points) and I'd like to stream directly to it. My concern is that the unit is one flight up (but not far without any major obstructions) about 35-40 ft away.

    What have your experiences been?

    My experienxes are pretty good. I often take my PB with me and stream from my balkony to my hifi. I reckon that the worse/less your signal is, the more it will buffer. For me this is only a couple of seconds.

    Well, I think I'm going to give it a shot. Hopefully the "reception" will be good. If it doesn't work up to snuff, I can always use it downstairs to stream to the den stereo system.

    I think I'll pick it up this weekend.

    I stream music to my HiFi via AirTunes. Not sure if you'll have any reception issues--I think it ultimately depends on the construction of your house--but you could always get another Airport Express to boost your WiFi signal.

    Either way, good luck with it, its a great setup.
