|Looking for an airport express type thing
||[Aug. 29th, 2004|07:25 pm]
In our new house, we've got two stereos and two computers. Neither stereo is in the same room as the two computers, so we can't listen to radio 4 listen again or mp3s on them. (One stereo is in the main bedroom, the other is in the kitchen. Both computers live upstairs in the second bedroom).|
Some investigation has shown that running audio cable from the back of the second bedroom to the back of the main bedroom it probably going to be too hard to have looking nice, and will probably take a toll on the audio quality (since I doubt I'll stretch to cables nice enough to avoid that...)
The solution seems to be buying something a bit like an airport express. If I used apple kit, it would be a no brainer. However, I use linux, so things don't seem as clear cut.
Here's where I need advice - do I buy an airport express, and hack something up with vlc + things from DVD Jon (this)? Do I find something similar from another manufacturer that accepts mp3s or uncompressed wave files (and if so, what)? Thoughts?
