    Can this be done playing music from a MacBook Pro running mountain lion?

    This works only if your computer, local wireless router box from internet provider and your home stereo systems are right next to each other. I doubt that most of us have this kind of set up at home.

      Andy, do you live in a Faraday Cage? My MBP happily plays through the Airport Express from any room in the house.

        Okay, so you still need the stereo and the Airport Express near each other unless you want to string cables all over the place.

        What you /want/ is a little dongle that plugs into the stereo that picks up the signal from the Airport, so it can be off by the phone jack and not physically connected to the stereo. I don’t understand why this isn’t seen as a problem.

        The best solution to this I can come up with is using a USB FM transmitter plugged into my laptop. Seems to work fine, except that it eats a USB port.

        The airport Express does not plug into anything except your stereo. So yes – the idea is you put it right next to your stereo. But you don’t need to connect it to anything except the power.

    What if you already have internet, existing network and Just want to use it as an output device (ie, send audio signal from Ipad to stereo)?

      There’s a separate post on how to do this.

    Ever since I updated my Iphone I can’t get my wifi music to work from my iphone to my stereo. I used to just wait for the box at the bottom RHS to appear and click. shown above. Now I have no idea. Can someone enlighten me how to get it working again. I’m working with iOS 7.0.3.
    Any help will be gratefully received.
