Hi peeps. I've read a lot about AirPlay and how to use it, but Apple's site lacks many details. Currently our home has a router & AP (none from Apple), we have LAN in every room as well. We also have several stereo systems throughout our house - one in each living room (accompanied by a TV, where the stereo is also a DVD player) and another one. We don't have any Macs in our household, however we have a a pair of iPad's and some iPhone users. Currently to play music on our stereos, if we don't play a CD, we have to connect an iPad via an auxiliary port to the stereo. As a belated fathers day we would like to step over to AirPlay. From the information I've gathered I think it's possible with Apple TV or an Airport Express. Now I'm not sure how all of this works. One tutorial told me Apple TV could only do digital and no analog signals or something, whilst the Airport Express could do both. Now from what I understand, Airport Express is a Wifi-station, so a router. Using this would mean creating 3 extra networks, or at least 3 extra signals, which would be a bit absurd. Now Apple TV you'd think would give more possibilities, but we live in Europe so we don't have Netflix/Hulu/whatever, so I don't quite see any use to it other than being able to do AirPlay & ofcourse mirroring screens to the televisions. Looking at the connections of the two devices, using the Apple TV would mean the TV should be on to then route the sound from the TV to the stereo. Am I correct to assume using Airport Express-stations and connection the stereos with the aux-cable in the Airport Express and aux/..-cable in the stereo? Does the Airport Express connect to the same network as other routers? Does the Airport Express require a LAN or can it also connect to another network over Wifi? TL;DR: Have existing network of non-Apple routers, have existing non-Wifi-stereoinstallations, want to play music over AirPlay -> How? Sorry for the wall of text, I'd just like to sketch a detailed image of the situation for best results.
