I have a Macbook that I like to use on my bed. However, my stereo is on the other side of my room... What I want to do is stream music to the stereo without buying those Airport things. I was thinking I could stream it through Bluetooth to my Blackberry 8310 and connect it to my stereo.

Is there any way to do that??

I dont know much about blackberrys but can they stream music? if so then how are you gonna connect it to your stereo, does it have a 3.5mm headphone jack?
If you got those covered then i'd suggest That will work if blackberrys can stream music from the internet.

My second suggestion would be to find a bluetooth audio receiver. One that has a 3.5mm headphone jack which you can plug into your stereo as an auxilary input, then stream from your macbook to the receiver.

An other option would be a digital multimedia reciever. These generally have wifi and will connect to your home network and can access music/pics/videos on your network. I bought one a while ago from Fry's for $19.99! now it didn't support all video formats but if your want it just for music it seems like a perfect solution. The one i had, you couldn't control the music from your PC/Mac, you had to do it with the remote but it did have a screen on front which showed track names.

OR you could always go oldschool and wire it...

hope this helps
