    I want to buy an Airport Express to stream by iMac Itune library but not sure if it works as I want -

    I have a normal Asus wireless route in my living room. My iMac is in my bed room and can only be LANed via wired connection. My home Hi Fi audio system is in my living room but there cannot be LAN cable between my router and Hi Fi audio system.

    If the Airport is connected to my Hi Fi audio system, can I still also stream my iMac Itune libarary? Or Airport must stream a Wi-Fi connected computer?

    as long as the express is on your network, you can stream music.

    Just set the express up to "join a wireless network" and configure it with the network name and password.
    To set all this up, you will probably have to run a temporary ethernet cable until you get everything configured.
    If you can't run an ethernet cable to the final location where you will be using the express, you can set it up, and then move it to the where you want it.
