    Hi guys,

    Just a quick one, I've been looking for specifications for the Airport express with regards to compression. If I used it with my iTunes library with Lossless encoded files, would they be on-the-fly encoded to MP3 or AAC or left in their Lossless format?

    the wi-fi stuff doesn't touch the data; it just transports it. Wi-fi devices are only designed to transport data.

    When I listen to my lossless files, I am uploading at approx. 1MB/sec.

    To my knowledge everything is recrompressed with Apple Lossless. (Which makes sense since the AirPort Express and the AppleTV can't handle all possible audio codecs and alac is a lot better then uncompressed audio)
