PC to HiFi without Airport
I've been experimenting with using a server-pc and Promixis Netromte to controls Win Media Player/JRiver via a wifi laptop or PDA. So I have full control of my music in a software system which is more advanced and easier to search, list than on sonos/squeezebox software systems.
So when I select the server music player to play I need to get WAV digital to a local DAQ at my hifi which is > 10m away. WiFi reception at the hifi is poor due to the building structure, so a cable based solution I think is best for me. I could used the ethernet on the Airport but can I use Windows Media Player ?
What are other options for getting digital signal to a DAQ over lengths of 10 - 20 m ? USB extenders, optical/digital repeaters etc....without playing with raw digital ? Is there no device that allows me to send what is playing on the pc as raw digital over ethernet connection to a good DAQ (like DAQmagic), squeezebox doesn't for example. Th
