Can I use a second remote ap to hook to my computer?

I want to have an ap in my basement where my Internet enters my house. I want one near my stereo. And I want another in my office by the printer for remote printing. Is this possible?

    I have a very similar setup. I have my first Airport Extreme Dual Band in the basement where the cable comes in. I have my second Airport Extreme Dual Band upstairs in my living room connected to my new HD TV and Blu ray player so I can stream Netflix movies over the internet. This second Airport also gives my wireless network a boost upstairs. Setting this up took a whole 10 minutes. On the one down stairs i check marked a box that said " allow network to be extended". On the second one I set it up to "extend a network". It works like a charm, like apple products always do!! I would think that you could get away with the Express for your stereo connection. the Extreme would be overkill unless you connect a computer or some other device by cat5 cable in that location.
