    Hope someone can help, this is doing my head in.
    I have 2 accounts on my MacBook.
    One for me, one for my wife.
    Is it possible to share both our iTunes music at the same time.
    Real world example:
    I can use my iPad to control my iTunes and stream it to an airport express, while my wife does the same from her iPhone, streaming HER music to an airport express in the kitchen (lol, where else?)

    Can this be done?
    Thanks in advance, any advice would be super.

    >Can this be done?<

    Not with Apple Airplay, a single instance of iTunes can't support playback zones with the current s/w.

    I may be wrong, but I recall an iOS device (like an iPhone) can send music to a single Express without needing iTunes running, so maybe her indoors can listen to the tracks d/led to the iPhone?

    Yer, this accrued to me 30 secs after posting the question.
    She has all her music on her phone with space for more.
    Thanks for the reply.

    I can confirm that you can stream to one Airport Express from iTunes, while streaming to another from an iPod/iPhone at the same time. It can get a bit messy if both devices try to grab the same AE, though.
