This shouldn't matter. I have used both 32 bit & 64 bit Mac operating systems with the ae. I also use the DIP after my ae or apple tv's before the external dac

Good to hear than Mac 64 bit OS doesn't affect AE playback. As soon as my optical cable arrives I will grab an AE and start setting it up. Hopefully 64 bit XP won't give me any problems; I might be back on here putting up an S.O.S. next week. Any 64 bit XP Airport Express users out there with advice on settings? I read a post last night about a test that proved iTunes bypasses kmixer. So maybe that won't be a problem?
Turns out it won't work. The AE setup booklet says service pack 3 is required for XP, which is not available for XP 64 bit. I do have an old Vaio which I use as a holding place for my music library until I get the 64 bit laptop cleaned up, so I tried to install the AE on that, but it's hard drive is filling up and it is 5 years old. I tried to install XP SP3 on it and it locked up, and the AE's Airport utility hammered its wireless settings. I practically had to rebuild the Vaio last night. So the AE is going back. Hello USB audio!
