    Anyone have an Airport Express for listening to iTunes wirelessly on their stereo? I've been thinking about getting one recently. Currently, I connect my iPod to the stereo with an 1/8"-to-RCA cable. Having done that a few times, I'm thinking having an AE to talk directly to my MacBook Pro (or my wife's Mac G5) would be easier. But I don't know much about how the system works and if it's really worthwhile.

    Thanks for your help. :rolleyes:

    The AE works perfectly well as a means to get music to your stereo, but of course you need to have the Mac on for it to work (so the G5 would be a better option usually).

    It's about as simple as you could expect. It takes a couple of minutes to set up, and then you just play songs to the stereo. Nice.

    Oh, I have one! It's great for music!!
    Bad for wireless movies (plug-in required), there's a few second delay!:mad:

    Also bad if you have a fibre connection as it doesn't allow you access to the full bandwidth!! Apple should upgrade it, make it 'N' compliance! Me thinks.:D
