Just upgraded from Airport Express to Time Capsule but why no audio?

    Now I knew this before I bought it, so I have both and the speakers now use the APE, but what was the reason for that decision? Seems strange to me.

    Also, is it easy to use the Express as a wifi extension or is it going to cause me problems?

    By audio, I mean airtunes, or whatever they're calling it.

    I think it's just a design decision - many use their Time Capsules (or Airport Extreme base stations) as their primary router, and having to place it near the stereo to get AirTunes functionality is just impractical.

    Maybe Apple figures not enough people would use AirTunes via their router to really bother?

    FYI I have the same setup: Time Capsule for router and Airport Express for AirTunes & extending my network. It was real simple, works a treat.
