    Does anyone know of a receiver that can play streaming internet audio (e.g. from MP3.com)when connected to a PC? I know the new HK's have built in MP3 decoding, but can they play streaming internet audio? Sure would be nice.....

    Roy,
    You may want to have a look at the Audiotron I'm not sure what sort of streaming media it plays, but it does look interesting.

    In adition to the Audiotron, you might look at Outlaw's upcoming IR 1000, which will be a streaming audio "tuner" (initially just WMA support, but MP3 will be added via a free software upgrade by mid-year or sooner). I don't know of any receivers with the resources built in to establish a network connection to receive streaming audio. The IR 1000 is designed to operate without a computer -- just needs some sort of ISP connection (broadband or dial-up, although dial-up will likely hurt audio quality).
