Help with small Apple home entertainment set-up
I have an iPhone, and MacBook Pro, my fella has an iPad and we're about to get a mac mini to replace his ageing PC. (Yes alright, I'm a mac slave). I also have a spotify premium account.
I want to hook it all up but not sure what the best way of doing this is. I want a complete home audio system so I can send music to any room via the mac mini, iphone or ipad....
The mac mini will be connected to the main TV so I can stream from internet to TV and also browse on big screen. I've got two extra speakers attached to the tv (self powered).
I want to stream music from Spotify to living room/bedroom/bathroom/kitchen/study. Don't know what speakers I can do this with? Do I need to buy lots of airport express plugs and just plug them into any type of speakers?
The MacBook Pro has it's own screen upstairs in the study and will mostly live there.
The iPhone will be with me wherever I am.
The iPad will be around the house... I could get a couple of docks - I was thinking of getting one for the kitchen and attaching speakers so I can stream tv/music into the kitchen from the iPad/iPhone...
Someone please tell me a clever way of hooking all these up. I'm not an audiophile so not too bothered about getting the best ever quality, I'm more interested in getting average quality music around the house, without the need for multiple hifi's and docks.
