Wireless from my Mac to the HiFi-equipment

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I am not so technical so I will use common words to describe my needs:

 

I want to be able to send wirelessly:

1) from iTunes of my Mac to my HiFi-gear

2) radioprograms from internet to my HiFi-gear

 

How make this happen?

What available solutions are there?

 

Is Airport Express a possible solution, linked to the HiFi-amplifier? How change source (iTunes/internetradio)? Those are questions popping up re this solution; given that AE is a solution.

 

There might be others?!

 

Thanks,

myor

An airport express with your speakers attached and the software "Airfoil" should take care of all your needs.

You may not even need "Airfoil" because you can set up Airtunes thru itunes, but if you want to send music to other computers it comes in handy.

It's all quite easy with the airport express and Airport Utility.

If the radio you want is in iTunes (Soundic Radio might interest you), you can create a playlist of your favorite stations for easy access. Then, when you want to switch from music to radio, you can just click on the radio station you want in iTunes.

 

It might be possible to create a bookmarked stream in iTunes but I haven't figured out how. When I look for radio streams (good spot to check is Radio Locator) it seems most stream using Real Audio and/or Windows Media Player. I could listen to them but not open them in iTunes.

Hi,

thanks for your quick and valuable answers. I will continue with the AE-idea. The Airfoil product also seems to be very intelligent. Also thanks for the tips re radio stations.

 

Best
