    Tharg, If you can afford it. A Sonos wireless speaker would be great. They are not cheap at around £170.00ish but worth every penny. Top quality sound, can handle streaming very easily. You can also add more speakers in other rooms.

    Don’t worry to much about range. Because you will be streaming from your laptop via your wireless router. Your laptop should also have bluetooth built in ?? if not you can buy a bluetooth that plugs into laptop. So really all you need is a wireless speaker to stream too.

    Sonos speakers come with an app to control everything. So in fact you can use it independently from your laptop. I think I will buy my self one for Christmas. https://www.sonos.com/en-gb/easy-to-use

    Tharg Sonos speakers are fantastic we have them dotted around the house and the sound quality is great. We have a soundbar which is connected to the tv with 2No. sonos 1 speakers which creates surround sound, brilliant.

    As Joss says they are not cheap but if you use them a lot they are worth every penny.

    Joss, Brydo – hear what you’re saying re the Sonos speakers. Trouble is I’ve got the Quad system, bought before I’d worked out the value of streaming. So I’m largely using CDs and vinyl (reason for buying Quad) because I’ve got a lot of good LPs. Don’t really want to bypass the Quad with Sonos; at least, not yet. May have to because, aside from the PC delivering digital data into the system DAC through RCA connection, more modern stuff like mobiles and tablets will only connect via speaker leads which is useless. Will try a Bluetooth receiver to see if it makes any difference – I assume that I can send digital data into it. Will let you know how it works…

    @vitalspin but then you have to use the worst operating system Winwoes 10 I have ever experienced. I have iMacs and a top of the range Winwoes 10 laptop. Winwoes requires booting everyday, sometimes twice, iMacs never reboot unless its an Operating System upgrade. You can run Winwoes on a Mac if you must, in fact when I tried it Winwoes 10 ran better, faster and with a load less trouble on a 10 year old iMac than on a 2020 Lenovo laptop.

    @joss New computer recently did the update thing. Much swifter than older model. However, since that update, everything seems to take twice as long. Particularly true when accessing Internet. WMC pages takes (relative) ages to come up, for example. Is this common after an update? Are Msoft slowing us down so they can sell something to speed up again? Does not seems to affect madam’s tw@fone nor my Fire tablet. Can I do anything to get speed back up?

    You could try just going back to the last recovery point first to see if that helps. Also try identify the latest update you installed
