I've seen this work but just like what happens when you put speakers 50 feet away the delay quickly kills this as a good idea. The issue is worse as the LATENCY or DELAY across the network is unpredictable and you'll scream murder as you see your investment in sound multilated.
The Apple solution is very good. Go try it.
PS. Windows 7 has that new "Play to _____" feature.
Is there a way to share my desktop PC speakers over my network, so they can be accessed from my laptop and e.g. have iTunes on my laptop play music on my laptop speakers and also on my desktop PC speakers simultaneously?
One way of doing this is by using an Airport Express and plugging my speakers directly into it, but I already have a wireless router and PC connected to the speakers so I'm assuming there's some way of doing this.
Thanks in advance.
