    I am sooo frustrated with setting up and transmitting a signal from iTunes to my Airport Express from my new MacBook Pro. Can someone please help me through my dyslexic brain to blast through my stereo? I can't get NUTHIN to work, and there are so many approaches. HEEEELLLLPPP!!!

    I dunno. When I got my xpress, I just installed the software and it worked.
    If your a total newbie, did you remember to switch iTunes output (at the bottom right of the window) from "computer" to whatever you named your wireless network?

    yeah... after you've set up your network. connect a 1/8" (or 3.5mm) headphone jack to the RCA inputs on your stereo.

    go to iTunes and switch to "(Insert WiFi Base Station Name Here)" and there you go.

    it's as easy as that.

    if you want to use your stereo via Airtunes you can buy AirFoil which will allow you to use your computer's audio output (or specific programs) instead of only allowing iTunes to play.
