I have just started to listen to 2.1 audio lossless over a home network. Most of which are my CDs that I have converted to digital. Others include purchased high res 24 bit music.
Gear: as of now 🙂

Well, Marty, I've got a 2.1 desktop system & a 2.2 big system, and all of the music is on a networked server. It's worked out well for me overall, mainly (1) I can now find things, (2) I can use the same music library on 3 home systems & even my phone when I'm on the exercise bike, and (3) sound quality equals or exceeds a good CD player, plus I can download and listen to higher-resolution files.
Most of my library is classical, with some jazz, folk, and acoustic guitar. What kind of music do you like?
P.S. You might find more discussion of music-only matters on an audio-focused venue such as AudioCircle.
