    These speakers require a standard wire connection with a 3.5mm audio jack. They have no built-in wireless capabilities (Airplay or Bluetooth).

    Apple TV (version 1) has an analog output so this version should work.

    Apple TV (versions 2 and 3) only have an optical audio port so will not connect to these speakers.

    *** However, if you have an Apple Express wireless router you can connect the speakers to this device and use Airplay. The Airport Express has an analog/optical audio port.

    The Airport Extreme and Airport Time Capsule do not have any audio out ports (analog or optical).
