Playing iTunes to Multiple Speakers
Just a thought from 8 February 2006 about , .

Hot on the heels of my iTunes conversion comes this great post (brought to my attention by this fine gentleman) with this great news.

iTunes can now broadcast to more than one set of speakers at the same time. Previously, you were limited to sending your tunes to the speakers in your computer, or to the speakers attached to an Airport Express, but not both at the same time. Now you finally can!


Caveats: You have to be running the latest version of iTunes (6.0.2) and the latest version of the Airport Express firmware (6.3) for this to work.

What this means, in English, is that you could place Airport Express stations throughout your house and use iTunes to play music to some, or all, of them as you like.

One step closer to the brave new digital future.
