Wireless/Streaming Audio Solution

Hi all, I have a question about streaming audio.  I have decided to replace my desktop PC with a laptop.  The only problem I have with this is that I have a decent audio system that  hooks into my PC.   It doesn't make sense for me to plug and unplug the audio connectors to the laptop verytime I want decent sound, so I am looking for a hardware component that will allow me to truly stream my audio signal to the audio sytem.  I have looked at the offerings of the SqueezeBox and the Roku Sound Bridge, but they are very expensive and only allow for the streaming of music and radio-- I am looking for true audio streaming that includes movies, games, and internet browsing.  Do any of you know of a solution?

Take a look at something like a bluetooth adapater for your audio system. Most new laptops have bluetooth support built in.

Unfortunatley, despite having a new laptop, it does not have integrated Bluetooth.  I do not neccesarily mind using a BlueTooth Dongle, but does anyone have additional suggestions?

I doesn't need integrated Bluetooth.  You can purchase a USB or PCMCIA adapter.

Right, I said I didn't neccesarily mind using the USB adapter, but I was also wanting to see if there were any other reccomendations.

This is what a docking station is designed for -- full connectivity to devices that the laptop itself does not provide. If you laptop does not have a docking station available, then you probably bought the wrong laptop.

I'm not quite sure I agree with your comment Scrathcyboy-- what I am asking deals exclusively with wireless audio.  I am not interested in other connections.

It has to have a PCMCIA slot that you can get a card for.

Maybe something like the GoVideo Wireless DVD player would be something that would work for you.
