    Default Streaming iTunes

    A frend of mine is wanting to stream iTunes music off his PC to his AVR. I know how to stream music from my PC to my Xbox360 and PS3 but I do not have iTunes so I do not know what application or device will allow you to stream iTunes.

    Any recommendations ?

    Thanks,

    Tracy

    Tracy, to stream from iTunes to AVR that I know of, is by using Apple computers (Mac series) and Airport Express (http://www.apple.com/airportexpress/setup.html) which then you can stream music from iTunes to the AE, that is hook-up to your AVR via optical cable.
    I am sorry, I have no opinion on the matter. I am sure you do. So, don't mind me, I just want to talk audio and pie.

    Thanks, looks like the AAE will stream from a PC as well provided you have iTunes loaded and Windows XP.

    ANyone have experience with this setup?

    Tracy-
    I am a Mac guy, but I think PCs may have similar capabilities. I used to use the Griffin iMic USB audio interface for stereo in/out to my Mac. Works on PCs, too.
    http://www.griffintechnology.com/products/imic

    If the PC has headphone outputs you can use an 1/8" to RCA splitter adaptor to one of the line level inputs on the receiver.

    Macs now have optical audio in/out which, with an adaptor and Toslink cable, plugs into the DVD optical port on my AVR. I use my MacBook Pro as an iTunes, CD & DVD player with stereo and 5.1 surround sound to my AVR and LCD TV. PCs may also have this capability.

    Regards,

    Jim

    For that application I used an iMic with a 16' USB Active Extension cable plus a 15' regular extension cable. The USB Active Extension cable has a built-in repeater to boost the signal. Up to 5 USB Active Extension cables can be chained together according to this site: http://www.cwol.com/usb/usb-active-e...able-uc600.htm.

    Check with Griffin to see how well this length USB connection will work.

    Regards,
    Jim
