Audio Feedback from Airport express

I just hooked up a new Airport Express Base station to extend my Airport Extreme Wireless network to my stereo using AirTunes. I am connected to the Tape 2 input on my receiver using mini plug to RC jacks. Seems like everything it's working fine except, the sound on my TV, which is wired through the same receiver, has a noticeable buzzing on all inputs (TV, Video 1,2,+3). This is clearly the Airport Express; present when the Airport Express is powered on and absent when powered off. I have switched the cable so I don't think this is the problem. Has anyone ever had this issue before? Any suggestions on how to eliminate this or minimize it?

Hi Again Duane,
I just wanted to put a final post on this thread. Your suggestion did not turn out to be my solution. It turned out that I had a bad Audio input on my receiver which was creating the feedback. New input, no problem. Thanks for your help anyway. I did have quite a rat's nest of wires behind the stereo which are much more orderly by now.

  • Limit Audio Output from AirPort Express

    I have active loudspeakers (B&O) that I'd like to drive with the airport express station. As I can not adjust the volume of the loudspeakers, I'd like to know, whether there is a possibility to regulate the output of the audio signal within the express station, rather then iTunes. Why?
    a) I have connected my loudspeakers to express and it worked all too well, at 24:00h, my neighbors where really happy, as all 70 watts started.
    b) the volume control of iTunes is not good enough to really control the output (its nearly zero or full power).
    c) I want to be flexible with my macbook and not necessarily sitting at my desk.

    Hi TD,
    What I've done with my similar set up like yours is that I've added on a Grace Design m902 unit in between the Airport Express and the active speakers. The Grace unit also comes with an optional remote control which then allows me to adjust the levels without having to touch iTunes.
    You can have a look at the unit HERE..
    Otherwise, you can look at other cheaper pre-amp alternatives. The reason I liked the Grace Design unit is that it allows me to also send a USB out direct into the unit from my computer if needed. Good luck!!

  • Horrible Audio Quality from Airport Express

    Last night, I purchased an Airport Express for the sole purpose of using it as a client on my already exsiting 802.11g wireless network to play my iTunes on my living room stero. It took me a while to get the configuration set up correctly, but I finally have it so that it is communicating with the network and sending information and iTunes to the AirPort.
    My problem is that the audio quality on my stero system is horrendous (i.e. unlistenable). It sounds like I'm listening to a radio broadcast from way out of range.
    Here's the odd part - the connector cable to my stereo works fine with other audio devices (i.e. my iPod) - and the Airport Express works fine with just my headphones. So, there is no problem hooking into the stereo and no problem with range or communication between my iTunes, network and the Airport.
    I think this issue problably has something to do with the levels from the Airport unit into my stereo, but I don't know exactly what my next move should be. The only thing I'm quite convinced about is there must be a very simple answer to this problem which has had me pulling my hair out for hours now.
    If anyone could suggest something that could help, it would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    Hi cozmocramernyc,
    I am glad it works.
    I use the Digital Optical cable instead the standard cable and the audio is Awesome. B298EB6&nplm=M9573LL%2FA

  • Usb audio out from airport express

    If I want to put a DAC with USB input between Airport Express and my stereo, will I be able to do so?  I'm thinking about using the NuForce Icon-2 DAC.  So Itunes>>Airport Express>>NuForce DAC>>stereo receiver.
    Thanks in advance,

    Sorry, but no.
    You will have to use the optical audio output on the AirPort Express if you want a digital out.
    The USB port will only support a compatible printer.

  • Audio stream from airport express while watching a music video on laptop

    Can anyone help with instructions to have the audio portion of an itunes purchased video stream across the airport express while the video plays on the macbook. It seems to work fine with all of the music files but in trying to watch a video i purchased the audio will only play through the macbook. Any help is appreciated

    Hello ehende2. Welcome to the Apple Discussions!
    Sorry, but you won't be able to do this as this is a limitation of iTunes/AirTunes.
    (ref: iTunes: Movie sound does not play through AirTunes)

  • Can I strem audio to my airport express? but not only iTunes

    Can I stream audio to my airport express? but not only iTunes. where can I suggest to Apple make some about it?

    Hello keer. Welcome to the Apple Discussions!
    Can I stream audio to my airport express? but not only iTunes.
    Yes. To stream audio, other than from an iTunes source, to an AirPort Express Base Station (AX) you will need a third-party product, like Rogue Amoeba's Airfoil.
    where can I suggest to Apple make some about it?

  • Play DVD with audio sound via Airport Express speakers

    Is it possible to play my DVD with audio sound via my Airport Express speakers?
    I can play music with iTunes trough these speakers, it would be nice if I can hear my DVDs aswell.

    Not using Front Row.
    The real issue here is that audio and video stream at different speeds and it is hard to maintain sync. You know how when you hit play within iTunes it takes a while for the song to start through the speakers? It's the same with the DVD. So you'd need to work an offset into the audio when playing a DVD and it's not an exact science.
    You can download VLC player and mess around with the offset, then you'll also need a program like Airfoil to be able to force audio through the airport express.
    Good luck!

  • Audio Feedback from Keys

    For some reason I get audio feedback from any keyboard input while in Stickies. Only happens in stickies and Notes under the dashboad, as well.
    It's not the keys themselves, it's actually coming from my powerbook, like a tiny tick sound, but definately not a mechanical sound; it's distinctively electronically generated.
    It's hard to tell if it's coming from the speakers or not, and changing the system volume does nothing.
    I've checked settings under Universal Access and every feature is off. There are no settings under Stickies or the Dashboard for any kind of audio feedback feature.
    Anyone else notice this?

    Can you try an external microphone (connect via USB), and see if same issue occurs?  If the problem persists, then you might want to check to see if there is a newer audio driver for your model.

  • Stuttering audio from airport express...

    I installed my first airport express yesterday. Had some problems: my main computer couldn't load the Airport Utility (see, and I've gotten things configured through another computer but I'm getting lots of stuttering audio when I attempt playback.
    There's a pattern to it: the song starts fine, and then about 3 seconds in it starts stuttering. A buffering issue?
    No problems on the network that I'm aware of.
    I tried setting Quicktime to "safe mode waveout", but no help.
    Any tips?

    Typically, "stuttering" can be a result of either low signal strength or high signal noise values, or both.
    It is very possible that you may have some form of Wi-Fi interference in the immediate area that is preventing your AirPort Express Base Station (AX) from getting a good clean signal.
    I suggest you perform a simple site survey, using utilities like the following to determine potential areas of interference, and then, try to either eliminate or significantly reduce them where possible:
    For Macs:
    o MacStumbler
    o iStumbler
    For PCs:
    o NetStumbler
    o WiFi Manager

  • Audio from Airport Express

    Someone told me they thought the new Airport Express has a fiber optic toss link audio jack as opposed to the standard audio jack for better sound quality. Any truth to this? Doesn't look like if on the apple store website but thought maybe I'm missing something.
    The old jack just doesn't offer good sound quality like fiber optic.

    The AirPort Express (AX) has always had an optical audio output as well as an analog output. states "3.5-mm audio minijack for analog or optical digital sound".

  • Wi-Fi Car Audio from Airport Express

    Rockford Fosgate makes a car stereo with a 20GB hard drive that you can upload songs to while your car sits in your garage. No toting your ipod around.
    The bummer is that it doesn't appear to be mac compatible. Anybody know of a product for mac that can do what this does?

  • Front Row + Audio Streaming to Airport Express...

    I purchased an airport express and have been able to successfully stream my itunes to the device. However streaming from front row seems to be a problem. Does front row support audio streaming? I would love to be able to use my apple remote to control my music using the television screen. The remote seems to be useless with itunes.

    Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but Front Row under Leopard doesn't support Airtunes streaming:

  • Digital Audio out from Airport's USB?

    I don't yet have the means to try it out, so does anyone know if this can be done? I'm getting active monitors with an onboard dac, but only usb input. The manufacturer says the speakers can get digital audio from a Mac mini usb, but is it a different story with the APX?

    Why do you think it wouldn't, by the way? Printers
    are "plug & play" so if the monitors are, why
    wouldn't the system preferences offer the same
    possibility as a usb port on the mac itself. They
    have a Mac mini feeding digital audio via usb just
    fine... they say.
