Mail for help.Help!!

Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

Evening snowhead techies!!

I have a PC/TV in my kitchen which holds all my music. Following some 'house alterations' we now have a sitting area about 50 feet away from said TV.

I was wondering if I can buy remote wireless speakers which the PC could play music to, without going to the expensive of Sonos etc?

Or I have some speakers for an apple dock, if I could plug them into 'something' that would play in sync from the Windows PC???

And no, 'buy apple' isn't an option, as far as I am aware they don't do an all in 1 touchscreen integrated TV/computer....

kitenski, in a similar situation, and with a virtually redundant but decent hifi system we were about to get rid of, I bought an Apple Aiport express , set up the network from the PC and connected it to the audio port of the hifi. It also works from all of our Ipods and Iphones, and you can connect non-Apple stuff with a normal jack. Yes I know you didn't want Apple, nor did we, and you probably haven't got an old stack system kicking about, but it may be a solution if others ever read the thread.

 Well, the person's real but it's just a made up name, see?

Mr Piehole, don't reckon bluetooth will cover the distance.....

Hells Bells, so I'd buy the airport express and plug speakers into it, then use itunes on the PC to play to it???

Just come across these which seem worthy of further investigation..especially with multi speaker sync.....

 Anyway, snowHeads is much more fun if you do.

You can get a pair of devices called an audio sender which is like a long lead from your PC to the speakers except it uses wireless in the band 863-865MHz (just like wireless headphones).
