Forum Question: Doubts about Time Capsule

Hi, I would like to know If I buy a TimeCapsule 1TB I have the “service” of transmiting music from my itunes library to an audio equipment connected to it.
Also, I would like to know if I buy the Time Capsule 1tb I can move my itunes files to it and they still work properly.

Thank you very much and as you may notice, english is not my mother languaje so try to understand.

    Well, Time Capsule by itself doesn’t transmit music to audio equipment. That’s something that Airport Express does. See http://www.apple.com/airportexpress/features/airtunes.html and it explains it all there.
    By default Time Capsule is set up to use the hard drive inside for backups. But you can re-configure it to share files there as well. Or, attach another USB hard drive attached to your TC to house your iTunes media files. In iTunes you can choose to simply keep the media files at that external location, and then have your library data files locally, or house your entire iTunes library there. Though having your music files available over a network has issues too — network data speed is not nearly as fast as what you are used to with your music on your local drive.

      Thank you very much, but is it possible to transmit audio to a music equipment without cables? I dont wanna spend money in an airport express and also a Time Capsule just because the wireless music transmission is not available on this last product.

      Thanks!

      P.S: As you can see I hate cables attached to my macbook :p

        I’m not sure what you mean. You can transmit music from your MacBook to a speaker system via an Airport Express. But the Airport Express needs to be plugged in to a wall, and then plugged in to your stereo. So there are wires. But not between your MacBook and anything.
        Go into an Apple Store and ask for a demonstration of the Airport Express.
