How do I connect three separate speaker systems wirelessly to my Apple TV that contains my music collection?

I have the original Apple TV connected to my stereo + speakers, an iMac w/great speakers, separate Bose 321 speakers in my den and a wireless network.

    As things stand today there is no way to stream content from a standard Apple TV to be played back on your iMac. You can of course do it the other way and this is the set up most people use.

    The iMac, with normally a bigger hard drive and the ability to expand storage, is the best place as the permanent repository for your media collection. This allows iTunes to manage the content. You can then play back the content on your iMac speakers and if you set up Apple TV as Airtunes Speakers, through your stereo as well.

    Use an Airport Express to connect your Bose 321 to the network and enable simultaneous streaming to those speakers as well.
