yeah, there's definitely a bug in there somewhere. Make sure you submit a feedback report. I'm sure it will get ironed out. iTunes 11 was a huge departure from previous versions and it'll surely have some weirdness here and there for a while.
Just curious, do you have and older (802.11g or b) Airport Expresses in the mix? Is your Time Capsule firmware up to date? There are so many variables in these setups, you really have to be scientific while troubleshooting. My Airplay/ remorte speakers setup is really frustrating at the moment, too. I have an older Express in there that I suspect is a problem. But nevertheless it was all working fine before the 11 update.
Try this: see if turning on all speakers at once works for a few hours. That's the only thing that's flawless for me.

Yes, they really have gone off-the-rails in a lot of respects with this version of iTunes. I've used iTunes since it's first incarnation & I'd have to honestly say this is the first version that has been a backwards step in features & performance. I just don't get Apples agenda at the moment. Removing useful features & replacing them with features that are difficult to use or are more cumbersome than the ones they replace.
But back on-topic... I have a Airport Expresses of various ages in the mix. None of which had any problems with streaming from iTunes until I 'upgraded' to iTunes 11.
My TimeCapsule is a new 2TB, firmware appears up-to-date (7.6.1)
And whether I have one set or three of speakers on it drops out.

No Maorriyan, still having problems. There is something wrong with the most recent versions of iTunes, simple as that. Another problem I've also found is that even when on the main computer (not wireless speakers etc) a song will show that it is playing but the audio will vanish. You have to then pause the playback & restart to get the audio back.

I have problems too since I use the new itunes 11 with a vsx 922 pioneer system. the music does pause or does not start the vsx-922 or the sound continuously drops.
The only solution I found is to activate the whole Sytem's output to airplay in system preferences. Then I no more experience the itunes 11 problem

I have tried to revert to itunes 10.7 but airplay still did had problems. So the itunes 11 installation seemed to have update the airplay daemon but the itunes 10.7 did not reinstall the airplay daemon.
The airplay on vsx interface on TV had some visual problems too.
That's when I went to the vsx 922 interface and saw that there was a VSX 922 firmware update !
that seems at last to solve the problem (tested under 10.7 for now, I am downloading itunes 11 in order to test if the problem is solved too under 10.7)
