Are you interested in computer based streamer or only off the shelf solution? Then there are many single board computers and few very good Linux distros for the purpose.

The one that I have done is using Beaglebone black + Debian Linux (with MPD)

I'm in the process of installing Audiophile Linux (ap-linux.com) on an old laptop. Will update how it goes, but based on website, it appears to be good option. You can even install it on single board computers as koushik mentioned. I have also tried volumio (earlier raspyfi) on a raspberry pi. Decent low budget option. A couple of years ago I built a vortex box for auto cd ripping, server and playback. It used the same app as Logitech squeezebox.

Sonos? Plug and play...great apps for computer/iDevices/Android. Been using 3 of their units for over 4 years and always been delighted with its performance.
