    G'day, I have an imac and airport express which I use to stream music from itunes to my stereo system in the kids room which works perfectly.

    I recently bought a Yamaha RX-V3900 receiver for my home theatre room which has an ethernet connection at the back. I have hard wired the av receiver to my router and I have got a connection as I can hear internet radio stations through the receiver.

    What I cant figure out is how to stream music from itunes to the receiver in a similar manner to the way I do with airport express. I was hoping this would be possible as I dont want to have to purchase another airport express if I can help it.

    try appletv

    I use my appletv to stream my music. You can store your music on there but you can also stream them to.

    I have my appletv hardwired to my router. Once I open itunes , there is a drop down menu in the bottom right of itunes. it allows to choose to listen music via computer or appletv. it really works great.
