Just got home with a new Logitech Duet -

This is a wifi box that connects to the hifi and a separate "remote
control" that also uses wifi.  The build quality is great - until I
started buying Logitech Squeezebox devices (this is my second - I also
have a Boom, which is like a traditional radio, with speakers, that
connects to the internet) I didn't realise that they produced such good
quality stuff (I assumed they were a mass producer of mice and
keyboards...)

I can't understand why this isn't more popular - I don't know anyone else
with one.  But it means that I can listen to all the music on my computer
via my hifi, even though they are in different rooms.  I can also listen
to the BBC and a million other internet radio stations.

The interface is great (this thing even works with Linux! - it also
supports Windows and Mac, of course).  The only problem I had was that my
computer's firewall was blocking a port, but following the instructions at
