I have the original AirPort Express that was released in 2004. I believe I've read that a 16-bit digital volume control noticeably degrades the sound unless the volume is at 100%. Since this AirPort Express can only receive 16-bit audio, I'm assuming that its internal volume control is also 16-bit (if it's a digital volume control). If this AirPort Express has an analog volume control, however, there should be no such degradation when setting the volume lower than 100%.
I got a new cable router recently so moved my Airport Express upstairs to extend the network range. The light on the Express is green so it should be extending the network however I no longer see the option to use Airplay from my iPhone or iPad when speakers are plugged in to the Express. Does anyone else have experience of using AirPlay on a router which is extending a wifi network?
My friend has a 32" Samsung HDTV, and Apple TV and an Airport Express for networking. She wants to be able to AirPlay audio to the home stereo as well as pipe audio from the HDTV and the Apple TV to the stereo system as well. She also has a DVD player that I guess could either be routed through the HDTV or put directly in the stereo.
Something high quality (with a subwoofer most likely) and reasonably priced. Not sure if 5.1 is needed. Probably just a 2.1 would be best. Any recommendations GDGT?
I'm specifically looking for something to use in our office. We have an airport express setup so it would need to have an audio-in jack to receive music from the express. I'm tired of the tinny sound but only have authorization for $100.
which do you recommend for hardwiring a 360 and wireless to macbook pro?
My main router is an Airport Extreme. I recently bought a Blu-ray player that only has wired internet (Ethernet-port). Since it is inconvenient to get a cable from the Extreme to where the Blu-ray player is standing I want an Express to share its wireless connection with the Blu-ray player via its Ethernet-port. Is this possible?
I've been waiting for the Airport Express for quite a while already (Since 2009, I think.). I haven't purchased it yet though because i have been waiting for the next refresh since the price is quite high for such a device (Can't get it refurbished - don't have eBay and Craiglist here.). Any predictions for the next refresh?
For what it does $70 on the apple website doesn't seem bad, but I realized that the product is about 2 years old. Is apple going to make a new (better) one? Should I buy the old model off of ebay/amazon.com? If I could get it for only $50 that would be sweet, but the more I look, the more it seems that it's just the same to get it from the Apple website. Thoughts? I would be using it as a router, possibly for wireless printing, and definitely for the wireless music hookup. Anyone have...
I've bought an AirPort Express in order to stream music from iTunes to my stereo. I've set up the Express in client mode in order to join my wireless network already in place. Now I have a problem with my internet connection when the Express is joining the existing wireless network i.e. the internet is killed when Express is working. After the Express is plugged off and the router is restarted, the internet connection is ok. Do you have any ideas how to make these two devices to work...
My roommate keeps torrenting on the network that I pay for. I don't want to get in trouble...
I realize I'm in the minority, but existing hardware(usb speakers/airport) is cheaper than getting a jambox to handle wireless audio for travel.
would I be better off getting a netbook and turning it into a wifi hotspot instead?
I am presently using XP and a Linksys Wireless Router. I do not want to disconnect the Linksys router and use the Airport Express for it's Airtunes capabilities only - I have an ITouch wihich has the ITunes remote function. My stereo is in another room and I wanted to know if I can connect to my wireless network (using WEP Encryption) I have 'general' knowledge of computers. Also, does the Express need to be connect via ethernet during initial set up? Thank you Jason
I have searched and tried a few things but the question is simple - Does anyone know if I can run this as a print server with straight forward WEP network?
I've been having some weird problems with my Express (802.11n). I obviously want it operating at its optimal settings, but when I try using it in 802.11n (5GHz) mode, the range of the Express drops down to an unusable level. Unless I'm in the same room as the device, I can't get any signal. Curiously, when I run it in 802.11n (b/g compatible) mode, the range is great. Anyone experienced anything similar/have any suggestions?
