8 Jun, 2004

Another small surprise from apple, AirPort Express is a small Airport basestation with 10/100 LAN port, USB, and for AirTunes Support; A built-in 3.5mm audio out jack.

AirPort ExpressThe AirPort Express Base Station looks much like a powerbook's power adaptor, plugging directly into a wall socket and sharing hardwired network access and USB printing via 802.11g wireless. The kicker? AirPort Express can also accept streaming audio from any AirPort equipped mac via iTunes. The 3.5mm audio jack can be connected to powered speakers or a stereo system nearby, and with multiple AirPort Express stations in a home, allow a single mac to stream iTunes audio to each connected stereo. If you already have an AirPort Extreme Base station, Airport Express can be used to extend the range of your wireless network.

AirPort Express Base Station

Airport Express will be available in mid-July, and sells for $129US. :-( A separate Monster cable connection kit which includes a Monster mini-to-RCA left/right audio cable and a Monster mini-to-optical digital Toslink audio cable is also available for $39US
