I took a different approach. I have a dedicated computer strictly for music that has no internet access, but just network access. All of my files are on a NAS down in the basement. I then take over the computer using microsoft remote assistance with my laptop. There are no blips because I am not actually streaming anything; it works pretty good. I also have a Songigo Sirroco that I use sometimes, and it works well, only with the odd pop now and then. It supports any file because it is basically a virtual sound driver.
