    I've been thinking about getting a slimp3/squeezebox to stream audio files from my pc. Are there any receivers that can do the same job? I have limited space for another "box" so a receiver upgrade would be just the job.

    Cheers,
    Flip.

    I believe Onkyo receivers with the NetTune function might fit your requirement. :)

    There's a big thread(s) under MP3 / Digital music about streaming audio from PC's to AMP's, I'd suggest you read that as a starting point. But it would appear that functionality is pretty limited for example - I use Itunes and wirelessy transmit to a airport express that hooks into the AMP but I don't get a playlist display, which is OK for me because I create and choose the playlist on the computer beforehand.
