    Hey, I want to hook up my computer to the home stereo here at home but I'm VERY unwilling to pay $130 to do so. Does anybody know a 3rd party ALTERNATIVE to airport express? That is, it will be able to transmit audio from my computer to home stereo via wireless internet access.

    Thanks in advance,
    Freddy

    I believe there are several 3rd-party devices that will accomplish this.
    For example, this one from Netgear.
    I have never used it, but it looks like it will do what you want.
    Linksys also seems to make a similar product.
    The reviews I found (here and here) were done a little while ago so there are probably also newer products.
    You might try some variations on Google searches (I used "wireless stream music computer" to find these products) to check out newer models.

    Good luck!

    Thanks!

    They're what I was looking for- unfortunately the price is not lowered at all (and in the case of linksys, it's more expensive) I'll go w/ your suggestion to search around some more.
    Again, Thanks.
