I can’t believe I hadn’t done this before, but it’s an absolutely incredible experience. Airfoil allows to hijack audio from whatever application and pipe it directly to an Apple TV and also your local computer (at the same time without out-of-sync issues).
I have the Apple TV set up for 5.1 surround and while Pandora doesn’t supply that kind of audio source, it still sounds pretty fantastic.
The demo runs for ten minutes before it degrades the audio, but the full application only costs $25… well worth the price.
I am enjoying my Rush channel at the moment while the snow falls outside. I can’t wait to use this during project work at home.
