Advice for music in kitchen

by jorinkoan / March 13, 2008 3:55 AM PDT

As part of our kitchen remodel, we are installing ceiling speakers. We are relatively clueless about audio systems, but we would like to get something to put in a pantry closet. We tend to play CD's or listen to the radio in the kitchen. Does anyone have advice as to what type of component/system we should purchase. We've done some searching and have been overwhelmed by the options.
Thanks!

How about using a computer?
by Dan Filice / March 13, 2008 4:25 AM PDT

Do you have a computer, and do you ever listen to streaming radio stations on it? I do this with iTunes and I have an Airport Express connected to my receiver in another room, and this allows me to listen to the hundreds of streaming radio stations available via iTunes. If you have a PC, you could to the same. All you would need is a small receiver in the pantry with the Airport plugged into the receiver, then your PC can send radio to the Airport. Or, the receiver can be placed outside of the pantry with small audio wires only going to the speakers.

Some radio stations stream their shows, but they aren't available in iTunes. So long as your computer can play the streaming audio, there are other software that will send any audio stream wirelessly to the above mentioned setup. On a Mac, it's called AirFoil. I've seen something called Audioengine for both PCs and Macs.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
