While installing a downstairs shower-room and extending and remodelling my kitchen, I lowered the ceilings in both rooms, so that I could install, low voltage, recessed spots. At the same time, I took the opportunity to also install flush mounted, boat speakers in both rooms. I ran the wiring to emerge at the back of my TV, where I connected up to the auxillary speaker ports and could then access the radio stations available through Sky digital, to enjoy in the two rooms, fed by the zones.
This was great as a quick set-up but, with three young kids in the house, I soon got fed up with constantly listening to Dora the bloody Explorer while I showered or made breakfast!
Rather than buying a new music system to feed these two zones, I was wondering if it would be possible (and economically viable) to set up a system which would allow the new speaker zones, to pick up music, wirelessley from my PowerBook G4, as this is by far the best source for my music, as I have a large library of MP3s and there are all the radio stations that now netcast.
I have a wireless network operating in the house and this is distributed through a Vigor 2600G router. Rather than buying wireless speakers, which are unlikely to allow direct replacement of the ones I currently have in the ceiling, I am wondering if a device exists that can connect to standard speakers, act as a receiver, and enable said speakers to emit sound, as broadcast from my laptop's iTunes, over the wifi network!
Can this be done or are dedicated wireless speakers the only option for picking up wifi music?
