Hello, Long time lurker, first time poster, so any help much appreciated. I can't find anything that answers my question here, or elsewhere online so fingers crossed. I have a dream. Its not a very complex dream, but a dream nevertheless. I currently have a mac laptop, with some music on itunes, but have resisted ripping my entire CD collection as I don't really like listening through the speakers. Just got an iphone, and am excited by the 'remote' application though, and it has reignited 'the dream' of a wireless music system. Ideally I'd like to be able to control a large itunes collection using my iphone and laptop. But I'd like to be able to play it, without needing to have the laptop on if necessary. Would a time capsule and airport express be able to set this up? The time capsule to store the music, airport express so i can use airtunes direct into a speaker. If yes, thats good. But I've read bad things online about the life expectancy of both time capsule and airport express. As this isn't cheap, I'd rather do it once and get it right, rather than have to replace things in 18months time. Any advice much appreciated - thanks!
