If you buy an Airport Express (yes I know I'm sounding like a broken record
at this point), the utility software includes the Bonjour service. I have
these devices in my house. I use them to send music to various rooms
(living/ tv/ garage). Once they are all on the same network and subnet,
iTunes will detect them assuming you have the iTunes option set to look for
them. At that point, you can select which ones you want to send the music
to. Additionally, you can password protect the devices to prevent others on
your network from using them.
A friend of mine also has this same setup.
