Hi there,

I'm just getting started with my X60 mesh network, and a bit of a noob to this. My previous WiFi network was Apple Airport and I used to have a 5mm headphone jack cable that connected one of the Express points to my amp, so I could Airplay music to the speakers on my stereo. It's there a way of replicating this set-up, or doing something similar, with the Deco modules?

Thanks

Tod

Thanks @Vanellus

I got it to work a little smoother by connecting an Ethernet cable to the Express unit from my computer, then going into Airport Utility and switching off its WiFi settings, but keeping the Airplay settings on. Once it was set I disconnected it from my laptop and connected to my Deco via the Ethernet cable - and now it seems to be a pretty solid connection, that doesn't interfere with the existing Deco WiFi, but allows me to play music to my stereo.

If you still have your Airport Expresses, reset them by holding in the button at the back of the Express until you get a yellow flashing light. 
Then  usingAirport Utility, get them to JOIN your new network. All Airplay functions will work as before

Good to hear I have two ‘joined’ to my network and they work great.
