Most of us guys aren't.....unless it's for networked music and then it's a choice of Apple Airport Express, logitech squeezeboxes, Sonos, and some random products from AudioEngine. The D2 looks promising but expensive.

Usb -> SPDIF adapter.... SPDIF over wireless video transmitter?

OR something like this....

HP Wireless Audio Converter - 1 x 3.5mm Jack , 1 x RCA S/PDIF, 1 x RCA , 1 x 886111912025 | eBay

Not sure of the technology involved with the above device.

I have a Zyxel device that did just this, it is a wi-fi soundcard. Digital or analog outputs.
Alas, the driver resamples everything to 48Khz.

Also have a couple of devices that transmit digital audio via infrared. I don't think they are sold in the US.

I'm doing this with a Squeezebox. Pretty satisfied with the result, but you need a decent wifi connection for high bitrates (flacs and the like).

Yep, Squeezebox is nice. I used my wired, but wireless works well too.

Using EAC havn't had any problems with tagging (unlike Windows media player, but that is another nightmare). I have a basic AMD E-450 based PC with a 1.5TB disk that is used exclusively as a Squeezebox server, and when all copied, should be using approx 0.75TB of disc space. I also have a 1.5TB NAS drive for Backup. Why WAV, no real reason, its what I started out doing my CD's in, so decieded to stick with the format.
