Possible to use older Airport Express with new Airport Extreme?

I have an older 802.11a/b/g Airport Express connected to a D-Link router and a Comcast modem. I'd like to upgrade to an Airport Extreme for the faster 802.11n speeds and to get rid of the D-Link. Can I then connect the older Airport Express to my stereo system across the room and wirelessly stream music to it? I'm concerned it may not be backward compatible as it only uses 802.11a/b/g and the newer Airport Express is 802.11n - will that be a problem?
