    I have been looking at some ways of listening to music on the home stereo in my living room from my pc without having to run a mile of cable through my place.

    I found the Sound Blaster Wireless Music Center...

    Wirless Music

    Receiver:
    Size (WxHxD) : 6.89" x 5.51" x 1.1"
    Playback Formats : MP3 (bit rates of 32kbps-320kbps); WMA (bit rates of 16kbps-192kbps)
    Signal-to-Noise Ratio (SNR) : Up to 98dB
    Channel Separation : Up to 95dB
    Harmonic Distortion : < 0.009%
    WiFi Standard : 802.11b (802.11g compatible)
    WiFi Data Transmission Rate : Up to 11mbps (802.11b)

    Does anyone currently use this or another wireless media center that is similar?

    No I don't, but I'd like to add a comment.

    As is often the case they are 802.11b, which means that they will "drag" your WRT54G done to 11b for everybody on your wireless network :thumbdown:

    I'll watch the thread to hear from the community!

    Well I have received that forementioned piece of equipment and got it up and running and it doesn't seem to be dragging anything down to 11mbs yet.
