Wireless solution for IPAD help please
I have finally taken the plunge and bought an IPAD 2.
Having spent several days tidying up my MP3 collection and importing it all into itunes (on my PC) and then onto my IPAD I would like to be able to stream my tunes wirelessly to my main hifi system.
I guess the obvious choice is to go for the Airport Express since it requires no dongle on the IPAD end, transmits lossless audio and has both analog and digital outs (and I can use the printer which is next to the hifi wirelessly which is handy).
HOWEVER i also have a large screen TV in the same room as the HIFI and the sound quality of the internal speakers is terrible so want to also transmit the sound from this to my HIFI as the speakers are on either side of the TV.
The HIFI is decent quality (all Marantz 7000 series and Monitor RS6 speakers). I don't have any other MAC devices (other than an Iphone)
So to get to the questions.
1) Is there such a thing as an Airplay transmitter that I could plug into the audio out of the TV and use an all Airply solution?
2) I have seen the QED Uplay receiver which uses APT-X Blutooth is the quality as good as Apple lossless over Airplay?
3) If I go with the APT-X solution I can get an APT-x dongle for both the IPAD and the TV any recommendations?
4) Can the IPAD stream APT-X without a dongle if so is this simply a setting or a download?
Any help really appreciated
