AirPort Express 802.11n 2nd Generation

The Apple AirPort Express 802.11n 2nd Generation is an audio receiver that was designed, manufactured, and sold by Apple from 2012 to 2018 as part of the AirPort Express series. The AirPort Express has been introduced on June 11, 2012, and its price started at $99.

AirPort Express is a slimmed-down version of the AirPort Extreme base station with AirTunes support. AirTunes allowed iTunes music to be streamed wirelessly to a HiFi. This version has been redesigned and features the faster 802.11n draft specification and operation in both the 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands simultaneously. The AirPort Express station shipped in a very small form factor allowing up to 50 connections with wireless data ranges up to 300 Mbps.

Lacked a modem and two RJ-45 ethernet ports, but featured an analog/optical digital audio post instead. New AirPort Express supports AirPlay and AirPlay 2 protocols.


This AirPort Express has been discontinued on April 27, 2018.

Today AirPort Express 802.11n 2nd Generation is 11 years old!
