If you're a keen downloader of music onto your PC, you will probably be interested in moving that collection you love. Well, the solution to do just that is by making use of a digital audio receiver and bring your music to life wherever you want location wise.

Digital audio receivers present a number of methods and ways you can connect via your home audio network, but ultimately they all do the same thing.

So whether it's a physical connection such as a cable or a hub, you can soon get up and running.

A lot of the digital audio receivers available to consumers today require that you load up some software onto your computer.

Digital audio receivers reference this software so you can choose which music tracks you want to fire up. You can find out more about digital radio and audio receivers at

Upon track selection the digital audio receiver software selects the audio and then passes it over to the digital audio receiver. This is otherwise known as streaming. Despite the fact that the audio has to be transferred across the network setup, it's fast with no noticeable delays.

If you've ever got tired of constantly changing over CD's on your normal audio setup, then this solution is perfect as everything is contained in one place. There are other benefits too, such as being able to see at a glance which music track is playing as well as who it is by.

As this system is centralised, it allows you to perform convenient backups which can be placed onto a range of mediums from CD's to a hard drive if it is a large collection of music files.
