Yes you can. Using the Apple TV 2nd generation and later, which lets you mirror your IOS or Mac device onto your TV - this device lets you connect speakers and a normal printer and turn them into airplay devices when they are connected.

You will need to connect to the Airport Extreme using the Airport Utility, Go to the Internet Section, then the Wireless Tab. Check the box "Allow this network to be extended" Then connect to the Airport Express using the Airport Utility, Click on the Internet Section, and under the wireless tab choose "Join a Wireless Network" You also will want to add the same wireless network name as well as security as you have on the Airport Extreme.

airport express multi amp/speaker/system
I want to just extend my wireless system. I DO NOT WANT TO USE THE AIRPLAY OPTION.
So can I use say Pandora, Tunein etc. and select my wireless instead of Airplay and send the same thing to both my express units? (2) That way I can play to my stereo/ amp /speaker/ volume controlled in two places at the same time. I am not sure my question is clear since I seem to be getting different replays.
I currently have the 1st gen. express and play into my amp vis a cable. I see that amp port is still on the new gen. so I was in hope this can be done.

Is Airport Express an extension of my home WiFi? Douse it increase the signal strength of my home WiFi of the room that I put Airport Express in?

You can use an Airport Express to extend your existing home WiFi to a new area, assuming that you can get a decent signal to the Airport Express to begin with (since it needs to have a signal to pass through or relay). For example, let's say you have a house with three rooms where room 1 is where your home WiFi router is, room 3 is where you'd like to get a signal to, and room 2 is in between. Placing your Airport Express in room 3 may give you a stronger WiFi signal there, but it may have a weak signal from your home WiFi and therefore have slower speeds. Instead, by placing the router in room 2, (assuming you get a good signal there) you may be able to get a better signal in all three rooms. It has been my experience that the Airport Express has excellent antennas and has better wireless performance than your typical leased router from an ISP. Try different placements to see what gives you the best results.

using Xbox 360 and iMac
is this the proper device for the following network:
>one Mac (late-model 27" iMac) in the room with the AirPort Express
>one Xbox 360 in a different room
>connection to cable internet via a standard router (furnished by cable provider, working as a wired setup for the iMac now )
and a follow-up question:
Is there any chance this wireless net will interfere with any wireless connections in the house, such as the Mac keyboard or mouse, the Xbox controller or a wireless home phone? I assume the frequencies are very different.

Sure, plug the router into your Airport Express and you should be able to enjoy WiFi to all of the devices (assuming they support it and they are in range). Best bet is to connect the Airport Express to the router (where your iMac is currently plugged in) and power cycle the router, then the Airport Express to 'reset' all of the connections. One thing to note is that sometimes ISP's limit the number of devices connected to your router based on MAC (physical network device) address, so if your iMac was registered as the 'one device' you may have to contact the ISP to reset it so that you can switch to the Airport Express as your primary device. Then, the Airport Express can share that connection out with multiple devices as you describe.

I want to stream music to different areas of my house, simultaneously from 1 apple device. (macbook or iphone)
I have been able to stream music from itunes and spotify through a hifi connected to my TV through apple TV.
I've also been able to send sound to 2 outputs from my mac. The 3.5mm output on it and apple TV however the sound is out of sync by half a second or so.
If I bought an apple airport express, could I use this and apple TV to play music (from spotify OR itunes) at the same time and remain in sync?
Or is there a way to correct the output time lapse between my mac's 3.5mm out and apple tv?
