    Apologies if this is posted in the wrong place, but can someone give me some idea how I can stream internet radio from the laptop through the Denon amp. The only way I can think of doing this is by connecting via the headphone jack from the laptop to the amp. Is there a better way of doing this?

    The laptop is running Vista Home Premium if that is any help.

    I tried doing just that from my Dell and the level was very quiet - you should really be using a Line Out jack rather than headphones.

    Unless someone makes some sort of impedance matching device.

    i thought you could use an ethernet connection for this ??

    Haven't got a 4306, but I thought that was the case

    You can stream audio thats on a PC through the Denon.

    What I suspect the OP wants to do is stream Internet radio through the PC then through the Denon.

    I tried to do this with Pandora, which you can't run directly from the Denon as its browser based

    Surely, one of the main features of the 4306 is that it can connect directly to the net. Why stream the radio from a PC?

    As I explained, one reason is to stream stuff from Pandora.com.

    Why don't use the Internet Radio option of your denon?
