Ted wants to listen to his music via Airplay, but he doesn't like that it's compressed. Leo says yes, music streamed over Wi-Fi will be compressed. So it's best to keep it all wired as a result. Since Ted has such great speakers, he'll want to get a digital to analog converter to play the music through his computer. He should rip his CDs using Apple lossless or FLAC. FIIO is a good company for DACs.
