Not to any great quality as both slim devices are downstairs & my PC is
upstairs.

If I wanted to hear bad-sounding music, I wouldn't have bought the
SliMP3

This is subjective as music played via my PC is fantastic quality, I
suppose it depends what speakers\soundcard you have. :)

I can appreciate the constraints and priorities.

You can't hear the stereo from your computer? Must have a pretty sizable
house :-)

Satellite speakers and a multi-channel amp are a wonderful thing.
