Hi guys,

I'm trying to stream music from my laptop to my receiver. I am looking for a device that will connect to my wireless network and connect to my receiver via optical, so I can use my receiver's DAC. I would like to avoid installing some specialized piece of streaming software if at all possible, since I know my laptop can theoretically stream using DLNA. And as I said in the title, I don't use a Mac, so Airplay solutions probably won't work for me. Does anyone know of anything?
