If you are looking for a quick and easy way to send music stored on your PC to your stereo - that doesn't cost a bundle, the Digital USB Audio Sender might be the ticket.

Wirelessly Send Music From PC To Stereo

The nice thing about this no name product is its simplicity - it is pretty much plug and play. The kit comprises of a receiver, which plugs into the audio input of your stereo, and a transmitter, which looks much like a USB flash drive, and surprise surprise, plugs into your PC via USB.

Once you have this plugged in, simply pull up iTunes, or whichever program you use to play the music you've got stored on  your PC, press play and the music will go straight through your stereo speakers instead of the PC ones via 2.4GHz wireless technology.

A little button on the transmitter plugged into your PC lets you switch channels to get the clearest reception of audio through your speakers. You may well need to scroll through the channels to get rid of any interference, but we found this did work, and it achieved pretty clear sound, at high volume levels. The wireless range is quite adequate too, moving the PC around a typical-sized apartment was not found to affect the sound.

Of course, if you are already running something like your DVD player through your stereo, keep in mind that you will need to remove the cables in order to plug in the Digital receiver. Otherwise this a nice cheap and easy solution to get your PC tunes wirelessly over to your stereo.
