Airport Express alternative
show user profile  soontekk
As many of you know the Airport Express is a usefull little bugger
It expands your network range, allows connection of several devices and can be controlled from a computer to for instance play music in the kitchen and different music in the living room.

I have been looking for something like this and as i am not a fan of itunes and mac policy in general i am looking for an alternative.
A friend of mine told me there is loads of different alternatives but i am looking for the most decent one (not a bunch of boxes that somewhat give me the same functionality)

Regards, tkk

....... whats ur issue with Mac policy? and whats wrong with itunes o_0 Mac haters will never make sense to me.... Mac's just WORK, even if u run windows on them. Their stable, reliable, high quality, and they have tons of features you just dont get with a PC.

This better be an april fools thing, cuz if not, ur retarded, and go buy the damn thing, and use it, and be happy. It works, what else do u want >> If ur not happy with their "policy" then use it however you damn well please and give them a big middle finger, its not like their gonna come knock on your damn door.

itunes on mac = win, itunes on windows = fail

if you're looking for an alternative for itunes on windows this is understandable, but why would you not want to use it on a mac?

what specifically of the mac policy is hindering you from playing your music remotely?

you could always use airfoil for windows and just make it recognize foobar or winamp as your music choice and it will output your audio to apehttp://www.rogueamoeba.com/airfoil/windows/features.php

I use a mac and I hate iTunes, just thought I'd throw that out there. I don't use it because its not intuitive to make and re-order playlists, plus it duplicates your files.

"i take it there is no alternative, which is sad"

you didn't specify your alternative needs you just complained. Let me know what you need and I can more understand what to go with. I take it you ignored my Airfoil link completely.

nono Kajico, thx for the info ..
a friend told me there are loads of alternatives and this apple thing was copied from day 1 but there seem to be none at all, hence *wrists*

i need a box that plugs into the powergrid, can be controlled through wifi to play audio (audio jack out), has usb to connect printers or other things through the network and reinforce my network while doing so :)

Dude,...c'mon. I am sure your can get the items separately and link 3 or 4 different types of hubs together and get exactly what you need.
Should be easy enough.....

I like it.
I have it hooked up in the livingroom. Playing the music from my computer in my bedroom.
I can still do 3d or make music or even play games while its streaming. So its no problem. Its good stuff.
