    I really want to play my music in multiple rooms at the same time.
    I know I could buy an atv or airport express for my home theater but don't need all the extra functionality.

    Can I use a laptop hooked up to my sound system which is also connected to my itunes library on my iMac via homesharing to play music at the same time on both computers??

    As far as I know, you can't play the same track in sync on both Macs. You can start a track on Mac 1, and then go and start it on Mac 2, but you can't have a track on Mac 1 stream itself to Mac 2.

    It is an expensive solution but I love my Sonos system.
