    No you don't an Airport Express or Apple TV. All you need is a WiFi network, an iDevice or computer with iTunes, and this speaker. With AirPlay, it's like this speaker has an Airport Express or Apple TV built right into it.

  • This speaker system has the wireless AirPlay feature built into it. It does not require Apple TV or Airport Express. Those two devices can work with any speakers with Aux In ports, and they have other additional features, but if you were considering buying an Apple TV or an Airport Express for no reason other than audio Airplay, the Sound Ring gives you this functionality without an Apple TV, Airport Express, or the cable tethering you to these devices.
