Wireless Streaming Equipment Plan - Is it ok


Established Member
I am planning st stream the music from my computer to my lounge where my Hi FI is. I intend using a Squeezebox Duet. I know I need a server box as I want the music to be seperate from the computer. Can anyone recommend a good box? Is it ok to connect this to the computer via USB ?

I will also need a wireless router can anyone recommend a good 811n router

How do I connect the Squeezebox to the HI FI system.

is this a good plan and will I need anything else.

IMHO wait a few a bit until the Squeezebox Touch is released, which can play music off a simple USB disk plugged into the Touch doing away with need for a NAS. The Touch will also make the USB a 'network share' visible to the PC, so you can just copy music over.

Analogue, just a set of cables with RCA plugs.
Digital, optical TOSLink cable.
