iPhone, MacBook Air, Remote and AirPlay

I am now using my new iPhone to control my iTunes library on the MacBook Air and can't wait to get an AirPlay speaker system for the bedroom. A very easy to use and elegant solution. Thank You Apple!

 

Mountain Lion appears to work well with Tim Burson's BitPerfect also.

 

13.3" MacBook Air, 4GB RAM, 256GB SSD; iTunes/Bit Perfect; MacBook Air SuperDrive; Western Digital My Book Essential 2TB USB HD; Schiit Bifrost USB DAC; Emotiva USP-1, ERC-1 and two UPA-1s; Pro-Ject Xpression III and AT440MLa; AKAI AT-2600 and Harman Kardon TD4400; Grado SR80i; Magnepan MMG Magnestands; and, Rythmik Audio F12

It's a great setup and has no

It's a great setup and has no right to sound as good as it does with even a modest DAC attached to an Airport Express.  I'm getting great results with the "-G" AE, a Music Hall DAC 15.2 and a $3.81 optical cable I bought on Amazon.

I'm also playing around with Spotify (premium account, so up to 320 Kbps) streaming to the Airport Express using a program called Airfoil that lets you stream to one or multiple Airplay device(s) without using iTunes.
