    yes its definately possible and easy, easiest way is too make sure yer sound card has spdif connection on it then just run a cable from it to your receiver and presto you got the worlds most powerful mp3 player [​IMG] On my pc I have a nforce2 mobo with toslink port so i just ran a toslink cable from my server
    to my music system and play mp3's using winamp or similar software and your good to go. its awesome to be able to play
    whatever songs you want at the click of a mouse.

    My advice is to get a good two channel amp and speakers initially instead of the multimedia packages you see at most stores. Get a good 2 channel amp (or if you upgrade your ht, move the avr to computer duty) and some Nhts (or your favorite brand of speaker) to start out with (I'm running 5 nhts superzeroes + Northcreek x-over mods on the lcr, Sherwood 6108, and SVS sub and it's awesome). Something else to consider is to maybe buy powered studio monitors instead as well.
