You are not using an Apple Mac by any chance, are you?

In comparison with PROPER audio gear (cambridge. Quad, AudioLabs etc) you'll get a lot less sound quality per . I wouldn't bother.

What about a wireless receiver that plays MP3s that are stored on your computer then? - I remember Netgear used to do them, but they seem to have vanished from their website now

They used to have two products - one which was audio only for about 80 and there was a video one too for about twice the price. I was going to order the audio one the other day to take my music from the server downstairs straight to my Denon receiver.

I'm sure the quality probably won't be as good as the computer out (this computer outputs optical with dolby digital live to the receiver at 7.1) but as a general means of listening to music it would be ideal.

What bits of kit were you looking at Alice?

If you want to do this, you could do a lot worse than look at an Apple Airport Express (yes, it works with Windows XP). This way, you can stream wirelessly from iTunes to your stereo, provided you have a WiFi card installed on your PC.

I set one up -admittedly on a Mac- and it was literally plug-n-play. Hey Presto! Music from any stereo in the house.

Andy, No Windows XP.

Nosser, I was looking at the Mission Cyrus stuff. They do a Cyruslink range which appears to be serious gear wth the benfit of being wireless.

YEah, mission stuff is good-but no matter how much they say it's great you'll never get as good a sound from wireless as you will from hardwired. The more crap that you put the audio signal through after it's extracted from the recording medium the more the signal will degrade.
