Was out at the hifi shop today for some cables and came away with this...Roku soundbridge.

Well been listening to it for a while now and what to say. the sound is way better that streaming through a normal PC.

managed to sort out the Website and change the time set some presets on the remote.. not sure i will be bothering with the old FM/AM tuner.

in two words an internet radio tuner well that may actually be more than two!

i am currently listening to some chillout music being piped down the net from new york.

into the hifi and the sound quality is better that streaming from the PC.

I don't want to be impolite, but how much did that cost? It looks mighty impressive.

well spent this evening working out how to connect and get things talking to each other, as a side effect i can now print from the laptop via the pc to the printer!

So if i want to as well as the Internet radio stations i can stream any of the audio tracks i have on either the pc of the laptop.

No this is nothing new as i used to have the pc directly connected but it does seem that the sound is better, still using the analog out from the soundbridge as i have done from the pc before. I feel that this will be a relatively inexpensive way to hear "new" music that i would not have bought.

I think i will be having fun.
