Computer is on a home network, I assume? If so, I'd store all the music on one of your drives, use Windows Media Center to make it visible to the network, and then add an all-in-one network music player system such as the Naim UnitiLite (if you still want a CD player) or UnitiQute (if you don't), or perhaps the Award-winning Cyrus StreamLine 2.

If those are a bit rich for you, something like the Cambridge Audio StreamMagic 6 – another Award-winner – could be used with your existing amplifier.

You could keep the Ruarks if you have space for them, or if you want something smaller let let me know what you think about the above suggestions and I'll advise on choosing something suitable.
