Multiroom audio streaming from my PC

Hi,

I have a media PC at home, and I would like to set up some sort of
streaming system from it, so that whatever's playing through the sound
card (i.e. audio line out), can be streamed to a receiver in another
room.

My flat is small (450 sq. ft), and I have my PC and stereo in my living room.

I have a spare pair of the Harman Soundsticks II which I have set-up
in my bedroom, and I would like to hear in my bedroom, what's playing
in my living room. That way I can wander between the two and hopefully
hear both sources of music in sync, or listen to TV or podcasts whilst
getting on with other things.

I've had a look at the sonos and the squeezbox, but I'm not sure if
they allow one to stream from the PC - it seems they only access files
on the PC.

I have assumed that a wireless stream from the PC would be the
cheapest way - perhaps there is a high quality analogue transmitter /
receiver instead?

Any advice or suggestions would be much appreciated!

Thanks,

Tom.

Wireless Speakers. Had a set plugged transmitter into stereo and had speakers in in garden. You need a good set don't go for the cheapest ones.
