Music streaming

I have been using an optical cable to feed a DAC that is about 18 feet from an iMac. The optical cable has bit the dust and rather than getting the same I am thinking of streaming the music wirelessly from the apple extreme base station by the iMac. Specifically I am thinking of the AirPort Express Base Station which in turn would feed the DAC via the optical out. Any other suggestions? Thanks.

Just keep in mind wired toslink 24/96 verses Airport Express 16/48. If you do any video there would be possible delay issues too. On the upside the Express would give you iOS AirPlay support, which is very nice.

There's the Squeezebox Touch, which would get you back to 24/96, though no video and other limitations.
