Is Apple TV A Solution For Streaming Music From PC in Separate Room

Hi. I am thinking of getting one of these for my husband for Christmas. Here's my thinking. Currently our hifi and computer are in separate rooms so we can't listen to our music collection unless we sit in the dining room where our computer is. I'm thinking that if I purchase iTunes match, we can then access our music via the apple TV and connect it to our stereo system which is seperates. Is this possible?
