I am trying to upgrade my wireless network, have read the other threads but did not get a direct answer to my desired setup.. also desire an opinion. Currently I have an old, the original, ABS, of which I have been told does not work with the airPort Express. I would like to have the airPort Express so that I can stream to my living room stereo but also want to, at some point, have a stationary ABS, the Extreme model. So the questions are as follows: 1. Is it true that the old ABS and airPort Extreme are incompatible. 2. Does the airPort Extreme work alone? without an ABS? I think the answer is yes. Opinions: Would you get the ABS Extreme or just the airPort Express? I love the design of the ABS Extreme but, is it worth having? The Express seems to do everything the ABS Extreme does... I guess I am just lost, wish the Extreme had the airTunes option. I think my best option is to go with the Express and then, if needed, add in the Extreme or just another Express... any opinions? Thanks... (this info will be for my secret Santa).
