    Once we've made sense of our world, we wanna go fuck up everybody else's because his or her truth doesn't match mine. But this is the problem. Truth is individual calculation. Which means because we all have different perspectives, there isn't one singular truth, is there?

    Thanks all, I'm interested in a slightly higher quality streamer that I can buy second hand, any to look out for? Also if I had an old SOny amp (or other brand) from the 90s, with a DAC, would that work or does it need something more up to date?

    All streamers are essentially computers, albeit very small footprint ones, that render data to give sound.
    The least expensive route into it would be a Raspberry Pi.
    There is one serious drawback to this route - if you're not particularly IT literate you're fairly dependent on knowing someone who is.

    Yes, it's possible for someone to send you a preconfigured piece of kit, but unless they're relatively local to you there is the problem of any IT issues that will arise, and trust me on this one, issues will arise sooner or later.

    The simplest route into streaming media is yer good old laptop, because it's the interface you're most comfortable with.
    As soon as you move over to running headless rendering devices you're in at the deep end.

    I had a Raspberry Pi 3 starter kit delivered just last week, and it took me all of about 10 minutes to throw it together, and get some functionality out of it, but it also took a fair bit of head scratching and cursing to get it to do all I expected, and a good few hours disappeared in the process.

    I now have a RasPi3 doing performing serving duties, but can also perform the rendering task too, and can be controlled from a web browser on any computer in the house, and also by a controller app on my Smartphone.

    At this stage I recommend getting to grips with what you can accomplish with your laptop.
