There are several systems with WLAN-Speakers for sale. Most of them consist of several Boxes with WLAN-Recievers and a WLAN-Router/Storage-Device to spread the sound information. The WLAN-Speakers usually cost more than normal speakers with the same quality. That's oke, but I do not intend to buy a expensive router for around 300 €. I would prefer to so a music server on a usual computer like moc or anything comparable because that much more flexible with the hardware and software issues. The WLAN-Speaker systems are usually not that well documented and sold as "Black boxes".

Is it possible to stream music via my normal WLAN-Router with a Music Server and for the Speakers to play the music? Are there "open" speakers systems on the market? Any other suggestions?
