    I want to be able to stream music from iTunes to my stereo amp. It doesn't matter to me if I can get it to the TV as well.

    It looks like I could do this with Apple TV, but it seems like a lot to spend for just that feature.

    Linksys has a "media extender" that I think could do it, but it doesn't seem to be compatible to mac.

    I want to be able to do this wirelessly as I use a macbook.

    Any thoughts?

    Airport Express! :)

    They're great. I have two dotted around the flat for streaming music here and there. So easy to use and fully integrated with iTunes.

    Long @$$ wire.
    It's about 1/10th of the price.

    Oh, oops, I guess that doesn't count as wireless now does it? :D
    In that case, Airport express makes everything super easy, and it is a portable wireless N router / print server. I guess that's a pretty good deal for $100...

    Thanks for the replies.

    I guess I should've been more specific. The problem w/ airport express is (if understand correctly) that it doesn't have a 2 prong audio out that I can then use to hook it up to my stereo. If I get the type of wire that will do it, I feel like this will sacrifice quality. That's why I'm interested in finding an alternative solution.

    Am I wrong?

    I would have thought if you got a decent cable, such as a cambridge audio one, then you would be Ok.
