    To Shellharbour - the Airport Express is NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT compatible with the USB cable technology for this system. The only USB that runs on an airport express is that of a printer. I have tried time and time again to make mine work because of this answer and another on Amazon which led me to buy this system, only to find that the Airport Express and Extreme do not support the USB plug in for these. A great disappointment in my multifloor loft apartment where I have to leave my laptop upstairs next to the speakers to get it to play while I have guests over. So - this answer is not correct - these do not run on Airport or any other wireless hub/router. The Bose Companion 3 used to, my parents have one, but it does not have a USB, it has an audio port.

  • with only the speakers and your mac you can not. You would need wireless USB, or a wireless 1/8" Stereo
