The iMac is great, I am pretty sure I am going to stay a Mac guy. Yesterday I bought an Airport Express (802.11n Wi-Fi) but I am not using the Wi-Fi I am using AirTunes I just plugged it in near my receiver and plugged it in to my Onkyo and I can play all my CDs , the SQ is fantastic.
Yeah , the one thing I never thought id get into was the iTunes and iPod thing, but I did , I am hooked , I love iTunes and my new iPod , I was looking into docks for an iPod on my receiver but then I heard about AirTunes. I got that going yesterday. The SQ is fantastic.

I'll try to keep this short and sweet because it is a touch off topic...
Huge Mac fan myself!! I purchased a Wadia 170i transport for my iPod to playback my music through my external Benchmark DAC-1(Digital to Analog Converter).
What is nice about this device is that it bypasses the internal iPod dacs(about $.50 each), and the audio circuitry so the DAC-1(about $900), will do all the processing.
My entire iTunes library resides on a 1TB external hard drive, where ALL
the songs reside in AIFF lossless format. Then I use my iPod Touch as a remote(free app), to access any song from my iTunes library and play them back through the DAC-1 connected to my Amplifier and my favorite Dynaudio speakers! Very sweet indeed, and way beyond Star Trek!!
Here is one link that reviews the Wadia 170i. http://www.6moons.com/audioreviews/wadia2/dock.html
Feel free to PM me if anyone wants more details about this set-up. I truly feel it's worth the investment, especially if you love music and/or an audiophile like myself!
edited to add: The Wadia and iPod combination can also show your videos and pictures on the Pioneer panels as well!
