    Default Wireless Audio

    So this is only slightly related to DJing but thought I would start here. I am looking for a way to wirelessly transmit audio from my macBook to an audio system in a different part of the house using a WiFi connection or Bluetooth, or whatever else might be out there but it has to be wirelessly.

    I will mostly be using this for iTunes but would love to have to option of streaming my live mixes or anything else.

    I know the Airport Express is close to what I am looking for but it is limited in that I wont be able to stream my mixes from Traktor. So if you guys know of any compatible USB audio cards that would work or something else I am missing,it would be greatly appreciated.

    (Maybe NI should build this into the Audio 8)

    I've set up a club with wireless EtherSound and CobraNet before. Sounds fantastic and latency is almost non-existant.

    Sounds fantastic.

    I use an airport express for this myself - if you use a prog called airfoil, you can transmit from pretty much any program, not just itunes. There can be a slight delay on some progs, so i wouldn't recommend it for monitoring a mix..

    Alternatively, you could use a FM transmitter like you can get for the car - just need a radio to pick it up
    Save money on binoculars - Simply move closer to the object you intend to view!

    These guys showed some REALLY cool stuff at NAMM 2009.

    The latencies are remarkably low (in the microseconds) and the quality is absolutely pro-quality. It's worth a look. (In addition to being a Serato geek, I'm also our resident wireless geek. )
