I have 2 Apple TV Music Servers for sale. Both are 160GB and in like new condition with the boxes and remotes (can use an iPod Touch or iPhone as a remote from anywhere in the house to select music and adjust volume). I used them in 2 music systems feeding Bryston and Musical Fidelity DACs and could play the same music throughout the house (and outside). Recommended by both Stereophile and The Absolute Sound for the surprisingly good sound quality. Originally $229 each and a steal at that price for what you get. Like all Apple products these are a breeze to set up and can go wireless or attached to a home network. In addition, you can play or rent movies, have all your photos set up as a screen saver on your TV, and can access the internet.
