So I cannot for the life of me figure out something and I'm hoping you can help. We got a connect 90, and two Play 5s. The connect 90 is hooked into the router. The Play 5s are in bedrooms.
How/why does airplay come into the mix? I can see all the music in our whole house already since we have all the computers and storage devices shared via windows homegroup. But my husband seems to think if we install an airport express it will allow him to play through itunes easier. Is this the case?
Also, in our theater room, we have a Denon 2112ci receiver, which has airplay. If we hook an airport express unit into the Sonos, could this allow us to then also play the speakers in the theater room through the Sonos app or would we be using the airplay app? I know I could hook a connect into the theater room, but that's another $$ I don't want to do if the airplay would allow me to see the room and choose to play in there through the sonos app.
Please explain this to me. We have some best buy reward points that would pay for an airport express and I'm likely to try it out, but if someone could set me straight before then, that would be great.
Oh, and by the way, we have a DLink powerline adapter already hooked into the router and the Denon receiver. This allows us to make use of the features that the Denon offers that are wireless. Is this how I'm getting airplay or does that work automatically?
