    Hi Guys,

    I purchased a shiny new 16gb touch yesterday from my local apple store and it's absolutely superb but i have a few questions...

    Are there any cases available at the moment? I can't find any.

    Also, the guy in the apple store told me that i could use the touch with my airport express linked to my dining room stereo and stream direct but I can't find a way of doing this?

    Can anyone recommend a good dock/stereo that i can connect my shiny new toy to and have it play my aac format music through?

    Cheers in advance.

    I'm guessing you'd need to set up the Airport Express with a PC using the Airport software configuration.

    If you don't get any joy here might be worth trying the Apple forums.

    I would have thought that you could stream direct from the iPod. There's another current thread on here regarding connecting to a wireless network.

    I have had a look on the Apple forums and it seems that it isnt possible to stream music off the iPod Touch via the Airport Express. Apparently the iPod Touch doesn't have Airtunes / iTunes so it isn't possible. Seems like another oversight to me?
