Airplay on more remote speakers while not using iTunes

Recommended Posts

Apple gave us Airplay so we can stream music to several speaker systems. This is ideal if you want to hear your music in different rooms in the house.


I bought a B&W Z2 speaker for in the kitchen. We were very happy with it until I installed Pure Music on my Mac. Suddenly there was no more music streaming in the kitchen.

Naturally I blamed PM for this. More so because the Internet-radio music that I stream from my iPad through the Mac was received well in the kitchen.


Then I learned that Apple is to be blamed. One can stream to more then one speaker set through iTunes, but not if another program is used to play your music. In that case one has to chose only one speaker set.


There is is a workaround solution, though. It is called Airfoil.

I installed it and it works perfect.

Two speaker sets playing at once. My HiFi stereo set (with PM) and the B&W Z2 in different rooms.


There is also a remote app for iPhone or IPad to control Airfoil.


This is may not be big news for many of you but since I had struggled for a long time with this 'problem' I thought I might publish this here.
