CD Player with wireless speakers

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
My wife and I listen to audio books on CD's. We would like to place speakers in different parts of house while listening; this way we don't have be in one area. I've looked all over the web with no results.
Anyone have any Idea.
I've even thought about using my laptop I have a mac-pro and an older PC, but that would be a wi-fi situation and I'm not familiar with the technology.

Thanks,
Neil

WiFi would seem to be the way to go. Load your audio books into iTunes. Buy an Airport Express and a pair of powered speakers for each room where you want to play. iTunes allows you to designate any or all of your AEs to receive the WiFi stream.

I don't have the new airport express small unit, but I do have a larger looking AE unit which is a router and a hard drive and uses airport utility. Can this be used with wifi speakers.

Also instead of loading audio books into Itunes, wouldn't it work if I just put the cd's into the mac onboard cd/dvd player?

I don't know what you're talking about. So far as I remember, Airport Express never came with a hard drive. Is this an old Apple TV unit, perhaps? Or Time Machine? I think you could hook up speakers to the former, but not the latter.

Yes, that should work.

The unit is a time machine.

Not what you need. AE is the right tool for the job.
