Airplay based speakers - IW1? AudioEngine?

Recommended Posts


Does anyone have opinions on AirPlay based speakers?

I currently have a Apple AirPort Express hooked to my H/K 354 amp in my living room. I then use the Apple Remote software on iOS devices to stream music/internet radio from my PC based iTunes to the AirPort via a wired connection. It works great, no dropouts at all.

Now I want to add an AirPlay speaker to our kitchen.

One possibility is the iHome iW1. The other is the powered speakers from AudioEngine . But this those require another AirPort Express.

Has anyone used either product?

And here is the big question... When streaming from iTunes on the PC to multiple AirPlay enabled speakers is there any delay/echo between the two sets of speakers?

Our network backbone is a Buffalo Wireless N router with both wired and wireless N clients.
