Without Airport Express, is there a way to have iTunes audio directed to a home stereo, whilst other audio (browser, system beeps etc) remain on the computer?

Obviously I can hook the home stereo to the 'audio out' socket, but this'll shift all audio to the home stereo.

Plugging in to your headphone/external audio output does not necessarily switch all sounds to that output.
Internal (system) sounds, and applications audio are software-switchable.
Audio Hijack Pro will re-direct audio from specific applications to your external speakers.

And, also check out Sound Source, also from Rogue Amoeba. It may do all that you want, and it's free!
