Robustness of Airplay?
I am looking to set up wireless capabilities in different rooms in my house, and now that I have an iThingy, I was thinking of using Airplay as the main vehicle for this.
What's made me think twice is that I am currently struggling to wirelessly stream internet radio via my TuneIn app from the router downstairs to my iPhone when upstairs or at the back of the house.
I'm therefore beginning to wonder if a propriotry system using a plugin transmitter, ala Arcam or AudioPro, whilst in some ways a bit more fiddly, might actually be much more robust.
Has anyone got any experience of whether Wireless N should be enough to sustain Airplay all over an average 3-bed home? I was hoping to stream lossless, but am thinking that if my router can't cope with internet radio via TuneIn, when no one else is using the network, it probably won't manage one or two lossless Airplay streams.
Any thoughts? Just wondering if my environment is especially bad in some way, or whether this is usual performance.
(Don't fancy Sonos by the way.)
