If you use a MAC or IOS (Apple) device, you can stream all audio over Airplay. If you use a "normal" pc, you're limited to itunes.nobby44 said:Thanks again. If I go down the wireless route which device would you recommend apart from the Sonos that I can play all sorts of stuff from my PC such as Spotify, Radio and itunes. I think Airtime is only for itunues, correct?
And at some point in the future they will support a direct wireless connection to the router, although there appears to be some caveats involved (every device needs to be in wireless range of the router, otherwise you still need a wired device, I don't think I'll be changing over any time soon).bigboss said:Sonos is one of the easiest to set up out there, with absolutely no faff involved. All you do is press a button on the Play:5 and a button on the Bridge. That's it.
No, this means the Minx can play internet radio on its own, withouth the need of a PC or smartphone. If you want to send all the sound from your pc to the minx, you will need to use the bluetooth connection. I don't think there is a way to send the sound through bluetooth AND trough your PC's soundcard though. It will be one or the other.nobby44 said:Thanks everyone. I've just read in an article that the minx "Even if you’re not planning on using AirPlay, you’ll still need to get the Minx on to your network to enjoy the internet radio access." Does this mean that i can play itunes files from my PC as well as radio from my PC. The reason this is important is because my PC has decent speakers so can i link the minx to the internet sygnal that the PC can send via the wifi network to the minx and will it be synced with the PC speakers?
