Overall Opinion: Have used Airfoil for windows for many years without undue problems. I stream audio to three Airplay enabled speakers. However now that Airfoil for Windows is no longer supported I am also using a very good alternative software called Tuneblade.

Pros: Still very good at connecting Airplay devices but no longer supported.

Cons: Served me well would still be using it, however lack of support may cause difficulties in the future.

John MacDonald is using Airfoil every other week since at least a year or more.

Overall Opinion: Airfoil is brilliant...the biggest plus is that you can control more than one speaker when listening to Spotify...something you can’t do using Spotify app alone...had it for years and it runs 5 speakers around the house both independently and individually.

Pros: -

Cons: -
