    Hello,

    I have my TimeCapsule 2011 2 Tb at my Surroundsound setup in my living room with my Sonos and my iMac 2011 27" in my bed room.

    I'm starting to transfer my CD collection disc by disc (1,500 cd's) to my iMac's HDD but also need it transferred to my TimeCapsule in my livingroom.

    I transfer 5-10 cd's a day, so it's a long process - and I would like to transfer the cd's of the jour from my Imac to my TimeCapsule via WiFi - how fast can I expect the transfer speed to be - I have one wall and 15 feet between my iMac and my TimeCapsule.

    Ideally how fast can I expect the trasnfer speed to be between the 2 units ?

    Thanks :) :eek:

    Depends on the format you've encoded your files in. If they're in MP3 format 5-10 CDs shouldn't take longer than a couple of minutes.

    Then multiply by a factor of 10-15.
