    Hello, can anyone tell me if it is possible to password protect one's AirPlay over the Airport Express? I'd like to allow only certain users access to my speakers. Any help is appreciated.

    Use Airport Utility to edit the configuration of the Airport Express. On the "AirPlay" tab you can enter a password. Disclose the password to only the people you want to use the speakers.

    I haven't used this feature but I expect when a user selects the AirPlay speaker in iTunes (for example) he/she will then have to type in the password.

    Open AirPort Utility on either the iOS device or on your Mac. Then select the AirPort Express with the speakers you want to protect. There will be an "AirPlay" tab in the top right of the "Edit" window. You can enter a password and change the AirPlay display name there as well.
