internet radio through wifi to system
I've looked at the forum first but I'm still confused so I hope that you will be able to enlighten me a bit.
I currently have a Windows based laptop, wirelessly connected to the internet. The router is near the entrance door, as it is where the phone line comes in. I also have a HiFi system in the living room which I am (slowly improving. Currently has the amp and the speakers, soon to have a CD player added.
What I would like to achieve is to be able to listen to internet radio or music streamed from my laptop through my system. I know that the compression/quality is not great (music is MP3 or Wav - I don't have iTunes), but it would still be better than from the speakers of the laptop!!! I have done it until now with the laptop wired to the amp, but whilst this work for a party evening, it's not so good if I have to work with it at the same time
With that in mind, what do I need to buy? I am mostly asking here the kind of gears, but if you have brand/model please tell me and I'll research from there.
