    A big difference between this device and the airport express is that you can't control what's being played from the Airport Express with the Airport Express. If the computer is in room A, and the airport express and stereo are in room B, you have to travel from room B where you are listening to music to room A to change the playing track.

    Airport Express needs a remote.

    If you can find one, the Turtle Beach Audiotron will scan for network shares and use those. Reply

    Does anyone know of a media player that doesn't require their proprietary server software to be running?

    I'd like to find one that can just pull media files from a Windows (CIFS) or Linux (NFS) share.

    Seems to me that the Airport Express does this and a whole lot more for a whole let less money. Reply
