    You did not specify which model Sony you are asking about so I will answer in generalities:

     

    1.  You cannot connect any speaker directly to an Extreme via an audio cable - this is only possible with an Express.

    2.  You can connect a wi-fi Airplay speaker via the wireless network created by the Extreme or an Express to another Airplay device - this would be with iTunes via a wired or wireless computer or an iPhone, iPad, iPod, etc.

    3.  A Bluetooth speaker doesn't involve an Extreme for a connection - it connects directly to the source using Bluetooth wireless technology.

    Thanks for the update - I checked out the Sony - you should be able to connect to the network but you didn't indicate which version of the Extreme you have and if it is configured to create a wireless network that you can connect to with other devices - if so then you should be able to use the Sony setup to enter the network name and password an security type to connect - and the remote app will only work if you have the Sony device connected to the wireless network first.
