How far is your reciever from your computer? You can just get a 1/8th" to RCA adapter cable at radio shack if it's close enough.

Works real nice!
Then play them back on your stereo or select the ones youlike and burn them down some CDs!...

Hope it helped.

My stereo is about 10-15" away and all i want to do is to play the thousands of mp3s from my emac onto my stereo? Is their a wireless ar a wired network solution?

If it's only 10-15' then get a jack to RCA cable and plug directly from your computer to an aux input on your stereo.

Cable shouldn't cost more than about $5 from Radio Shack or similar. Will also give you the best quality.

I use the PowerWave. Works great for connecting ipod to real speakers too. Works well for a lot of things.
