  1. I’ll stick with the Airport Express. Costs more, but it’s also a router and extends my network to other rooms. With Apple Remote on the iPhone, I get multi-room music all at once streaming to Airports.

    Better overall solution than the one-trick pony Belkin.

    You are absolutely right. In addition to any audio degradation resulting from compression (ie. mp3) , bluetooth transfer will kill any chance of decent let alone high quality audio.

    Obviously this is not a problem for someone with no real life reference to high quality audio, that stores music in some compressed format.

  3. Bluetooth sound like the BEST idea ever!! NOT. Wow. The real question is: why in the world can’t we stream from our iPhones directly to the AirTunes & AppleTV we have hooked up, like our computers can. It’s not an issue of can or can’t, just that the option isn’t available. Yeah, we can remote our iMac that’s hooked up to the AirTunes, and that’s REALLY great. But what if there’s something on my phone that’s not on the iMac, you know?! Come on, Apple, throw us a bone.

    transfer rate of an audio cd is 150 KB/s around 1200 kb/s. That’s uncompressed audio. Compressed audio like AAC is 256 kb/s so to me it seems 2.0-2.1 Mb/s is enough, even for uncompressed audio
