High Tech and Stylish – Streaming Media Solutions
If you get around on the web, chances are you’ve probably amassed quite a collection of audio and video files over the years. It can be a drag when you have a cool video that you want to share with your friends, but you have to get your PC booted up and logged in before you can show it off. Then you have to make everyone crowd around your little laptop screen to see it. Wouldn’t it be nice to play those files up on the big screen?
Sonos Digital Music System
The streaming media solution from Sonos Digital can have your MP3s booming on your stereo instead of straining your PC speakers. This system can expand up to 32 rooms and is super-easy to set up. You can have your thousands of MP3s safely stored on your computer, but still have access to them anywhere. It works great with the popular Pandora online radio or other systems like Rhapsody. One word of caution is that it will not work with protected music files, like those purchased from iTunes.
From our friends at Apple comes the Apple TV streaming media solution for videos. If you have a ton of video files or are a YouTube junkie, this solution could be just what you’ve been looking for. You can stream all of your favourite free or premium videos to your big screen TV with this handy little gadget. It works great with all of the newer televisions, but don’t bother with it if you have an older, non-big screen television. If you haven’t sprung for a big screen TV, the Apple TV device is the perfect excuse to get one. “Honey, I didn’t know I needed a big screen for it to work, I guess we’ll just have to get one.” Sounds about right to us.
There are quite a few solutions for streaming audio and video to your home entertainment system. When you’re shopping consider prices, features and compatibility with your existing equipment. With these cool new systems, you can finally show off those media files you’ve been storing up for years.
