Easiest and cheapest way to wi-fi
Having got totally confused reading numerous threads on here and watching the beginners guide video on here I'm basically after the easiest and cheapest route into streaming from laptop to hi-fi.
From what I can gather, the easiest way is to buy something like Airport Express, Logitech Squeezebox or the Sonos thing mentioned on the WHF guide but obviously I need the laptop switched on for this route. Seeing as I don't have the laptop switched on all the time, or it's disappeared into kids rooms, would it be a better idea to get a NAS (whatever that is!) so that I can play music without the need for the laptop?
As you can see, this isn't my strong point, so any help on what I need to buy would be most appreciated, keeping it cheap as poss.
If there's already a thread on this that I've failed to read could someone point me in its direction to save everyone repeating themselves.
