I'm interested in hearing how other people have their Airport Expresses hooked up! I'd been wanting to get a computer to use as a "music server" of sorts. Being that Apple refuses to make a cheap headless box for me to use, I built myself a PC. It's got an AMD processor, 512mb RAM, Windows XP, and a 160gb hard drive for plenty of music storage. I've taken most of my CDs and ripped them to 320kbps AAC files. They're all on this computer (over 5300 songs). I've got iTunes loaded up on it, and it's set so other computers on the network can share its music. The computer has an M-Audio 2496 sound card in it, which gives me one set of RCA audio in and one set of RCA audio out. I've got my Airport Express connected to the "in," and the "out" is connected to my stereo system. Setting it up like this is great because the music can be played through my stereo in several ways: A. I can play it directly from the server, without the use of my Powerbook (doesn't use the Airport Express at all...plays through the sound card, out to my stereo). B. I can connect to my server's music share from my Powerbook, stream it through the Airport Express, then it goes back through the sound card and out of my stereo (nice for when I want to control the music that's on the server remotely) C. I can play music that's NOT on the server, but instead is on my (or someone elses) laptop. Streams from the laptop to the Airport Express, where the signal is fed into the server and then out of the server to the stereo. What do you all think?
