Adding Wi-Fi to a 10 year old system
After 10 years of faithful service, my old Hi-Fi is in need of an upgrade. The set up is as follows:
Cambridge CD player
It was a very basic, cheap system at the time but it's survived plenty of parties, emigrations and house moves. I added an equally cheap DVD player to it about 5 years ago and the whole lot is set up in my living room downstairs. The CD player is close to death and the DVD player was never much anyway, but the rest is actually still going strong (although I'm willing to ditch the lot if necessary). The TV is just a bog standard CRT. What I also have is a Mac desktop, Mac laptop, a good sized external hard drive and a wireless network, all of which is situated in an upstairs study. What I don't have is a clue about what I need to get the whole lot working together!
I'd really like to be able to access CDs and music and/ or movies from both upstairs and downstairs. The extent of my knowledge is that clever people have invented wireless speakers and receivers. Actually, knowing how clueless I am, they probably invented them several years ago.
Can anyone suggest where a poor neophyte like myself should go from here? Sound quality does not have to be in any way superb. I'm hearing impaired and don't hear any high frequencies from the mid-range up, so what sounds great to you on a top of the range pair of speakers will probably sound pretty much the same on a cheap pair to me. Basically, as long as I can turn the bass down and the treble up, I'm happy. And my partner, though fully hearing, isn't overly bothered about sound quality either.
Any advice would be massively appreciated.
