Is there a WIFI audio receiving device?

Is there a WIFI audio receiving device that works through the WIFI router to a receiver that plugs into a stereo for wireless audio from the computer to the stereo? Blluetooth devices work but the sound quality is very poor.

I think we already found the answer is yes.

Is there more to this spec?

Why I ask is we see too many solutions so how to narrow it down?

Works like a charm. Connects to your current wifi network and uses digital audio output from the Airport Express into the digital optical input in back of your AV receiver. Sounds great(!) Wink
