Since I really don't need to stream tv, or movies. Is there something simple such a simplified htpc for just streaming music from pandora or google music. I know this might not exactly be the right forum but I thought you folks who build htpcs all the time would know what to use.

If you pay $10 a month you can get Mog on your tablet or phone. Its probably the best paid music service out and its pretty inexpensive. You can use it for free from your computer but to listen from mobile devices you have to pay. Try it out on your PC then pay the fee if you wanna keep it.

Sonos. It's not cheap, but the there are frequent deals on the bridge and the Sonos 3. So easy my wife uses it with our local media store and our Rhapsody account via her iphone without needing my help.

Sonos even sells a wireless two channel amp. I think its around $500 but you can run a set of decent bookshelf speakers off of it.

There's the Sonos connect as well that connects directly to your AVR.

You can build your own AirPlay out of a TomatoUSB capable router, like Belkin N300 for $20, a $5 USB "sound card" and some computer speakers, or connect to an audio system.


Here is how to to"

I thought about purchasing another Raspberry Pi just to stream Music to and have it installed in my Kitchen with a pair of speakers. Just enable airplay and stream music that way, or using the Constellation XBMC Remote Control app (Or any remote control app for xbmc) to play audio files on my local network. Cheap and easy to configure.

Sorry I have been away for a while, I actually have a Sonos bridge that I purchased last year planing to go with a Sonos system but never did. I have been looking at the Sonos connect. I know I could use my phone to stream to my receiver but that drains my battery. I would rather go with something I can just use my phone or laptop to control while I am working. thanks for all the input, with all the feed back I am getting with Sonos I think I will give it a try.
