Airport Express

Has anyone used the airport express? I am thinking of getting one to go with my Yamaha RXV-671 and kef speakers in the living room. I just want to stream my iTunes music from my mac and control it with my iPad via the remote app.

What is the audio quality like? All my stuff is ripped to cd quality.

I had one that packed up after about 2 years.

Was great up until that point, but the Apple TV probably represents better pound-for-pound value nowadays if you're after an iTunes media streamer. For an extra Ł20 you get video streaming as well, plus you can use iTunes Match and stream your music without having to leave your Mac on all day.

Sound quality wise it sounded fine to me. I was running it into a Marantz AV amp using the optical out. One benefit of the Airport Express over the ATV was it can do analogue audio as well - ATV is via Optical or HDMI only.
