The canonical location for my music collection is the Android phone (synced from Mac at work), and I have a Windows PC at home connected to the speaker system. Is it possible to play the music on Android, but stream (via bluetooth, wifi or USB) the audio to these speakers (via the PC)?

Try Twonky.

Instantly stream media from your phone to devices on your home network!

It can stream not only to you PC but to other DLNA capable device and not only music but photo and other stuff.

It seems this only supports certain websites and apps? Not arbitrary audio? –  endolith Jan 3 '13 at 15:09
    
This app doesn't appear to be available in the United States. –  Michael Hampton Feb 19 '13 at 4:46

Yes, you can do this in Windows XP and 7. It will stream all audio from the phone- apps, games, etc. You do not need any additional software, just Bluetooth connectivity on the pc. AirDroid lets you access your device, including streaming music, over WiFi via web browser.

You could also just plug your phone in USB to your PC, and play the music on the pc with MusicBee or any other media player.

Please consider adding details as to how. –  Mr. Buster Oct 17 '12 at 1:34

Try Remote Droid Player. It also requires server software, though:

This application requires a server which needs to be installed in your windows pc(which you can download from http://doinhtml5.org/remotedroidplayer/).

What I'm "assuming" is that you want your Android device (with the Music) to play through your speakers at home?

In my case (May not be the same for you), my speakers have cords that plug into the computer. And I can easily take out the cord that plugs into the computer, and plug it into the jack on my Android Device, then proceed to play the music.

IF your speakers are built-in and you can't easily do it, look for an adapter of sorts that'll connect your phone and your speakers directly. Should be able to find some for cheap on Amazon or something.

Sorry if this wasn't the answer you were looking for, I might not have quite understood the question. However, I hope this helps, or sets you in the right direction.

That is the way I currently do it, but this would not allow me to amble to the living room and read a book on the Kindle for Android. I'm looking for a wireless solution. –  Sridhar Ratnakumar Jan 8 '12 at 16:06

If ur phone has 3.5mm jack, just connect your speakers pin to jack on your phone. When you play any songs on your cell phone it will just play in your speakers. Instead of connecting headphones your connecting speakers thats it. Hope it helps

This really doesn't answer the question at all. Plugging in speakers is not the same as streaming music from Android to the PC so that it can output to the speakers. –  eldarerathis Jan 3 '12 at 15:20
