Can I use the airport express as an audio transmitter?

I want to connect audio from a non-wifi unit to an airport express to broadcast that audio to another airport express for audio output to powered speakers.

If this can work, I want to know if I can have multiple receiving expresses.

If there is no way to input audio to the airport express, does anyone have a recommendation for a wifi audio transmitter that would be compatible with say two airport express units for a stereo signal?

Thx ppl

  • No, you cannot. The audio port on the AirPort Express only functions as an audio output, not as an audio input. You can stream audio to your AirPort Express using iTunes or the Music app on your iPhone, iPad or iPod for example only.

  • i believe this is not possible with the Airport express. You can only send music to it from an airplay enabled devise.
    For the application you are wanting to set up i would recommend that you use bluetooth transmitters plugged on each end of your audio devises.
