Is it mains powered? LOL: It IS a mains plug. The prongs are built right into the Airport Express body...DJC17 said:Before I order one, how does it connect?
I'm assuming it'll have RCA plugs that I can connect to a spare input on my amplifier?

The Apple site isn't too clear with the pics
Excellent - thanks.CanadaRAM said:Is it mains powered? LOL: It IS a mains plug. The prongs are built right into the Airport Express body...
To hook it to a stereo you need a Mini stereo jack to 2 x RCA Male cable. You can buy this from Apple or from a local electonics seller.
They didn't reshoot the Express for non-US markets. The one sold in the UK has a three prong plug attachment rather than the US attachment. I love Apple's power-supply system. It makes using things in different countries so much easier!DJC17 said:It kind of looked like that, but I could only find one prong on the pic for the electric plug, where we have 3 in the UK.
It's a combo RCA/optical connector, so he could also use that. Works (apparently) for streaming 5.1ch DVD-Audio.CanadaRAM said:To hook it to a stereo you need a Mini stereo jack to 2 x RCA Male cable. You can buy this from Apple or from a local electonics seller.
Ok. Having spent a great deal of time and money on HiFi - here goes..killuminati said:On the topic of Airport Express, I recently purchased and I'v been temporarily been using a $.25 Mini to RCA cable. Will switching that with a monster cable make a big difference in sound quality?
I wouldn't say that we have high end, but they're pretty good speakers. It's not an all in one kind of thing. I wouldn't say I'm an audiophile, but I know it could be better because the sound is 5 times better when watching a DVD(This AE is hooked up to the same speakers as my home theatre). It's only $30 so I guess I'll just buy it and see if it does make a difference.DJC17 said:If you've got a decent or high-end seperates system, decent interconnects, speaker wire et all, then yes, it will make a difference - but it depends whether you're an audiophile as to whether you will notice the difference a lot!
