There are many possibilities if you want to start streaming music. The basis of streaming audio is always a computer, whether it is a one-chip processor in a network player / music streamer or a PC based system. The big advantage of a PC based system is more computing power and the ability to always install the best and latest software for playing music. This assures you of the latest developments and you are never dependent on the software and updates from the manufacturer of networking or music streamer.
