Music streaming on LAN

  1. Hi;
    I would like to stream my itunes songs from my computer to my stereo system.
    I have an existing wireless network, and don't want to run audio cables around the room so I think I'm looking at a "box" that would be placed at the stereo and connected to the wireless router (which is at the stereo as well).

    I currently have a regular PC doing this, but something is wrong with that PC, and before I go out and spend $$ on a new PC, I would like to look into a device made specifically for audio streaming over ethernet.

    I have read about some that are available, but as I recall most of them got bad reviews on audio quality.

    Any suggestions?

    Yes, this is what I was thinking of... but it will not support iTunes A lot of my music in my iTunes library is M4P (AAC encoded).
    I am pretty much stuck with iTunes because of this, and the fact that I own 2 iPods.

    It's really nasty of Apple to have created a DRM that nobody else wants to use.
    I have no gripes about DRM, but it would have been nice to have a standard!
