Hi, I am a music teacher and I have literally hundreds of CDs in my collection that I use for my music classes. I have backed these up digitally (with windows media player) and usually use a 300 Disc CD player to house all the music. Still, I have more than 300 CDs and organizing them is a pain. I think I am ready to take the leap to digitize my library, but I need help and ideas. I have never owned an ipod (I have an iphone though, so I'm not totally oblivious). But I have a few questions about getting an ipod hooked up with speakers - and how I can use airplay. Do you need a wireless network to use airplay? Can I use airplay on any speaker system or will I need to buy one directly from apple? With airplay, can I nagivate to the song I want on an ipod and it will simply play over the speakers wirelessly? They won't give me the password to our wireless network here, so I am wondering if I will be able to use it. What kind of ipod would you recommend for this purpose? Keep in mind that we have PCs at my school, I hope a mac is not required for airplay. Are there any alternatives to airplay? Like any devices that will plug into the headphone jack and transmit a wireless signal to a speaker? Lots of questions, But I would appreciate some advice. Thanks.
