Can I setup my PC laptop to receive audio like an AirPort Express?

I have an older PC laptop that we use as media server in our living room: we listen to music, stream radio, and have it attached to our TV for watching videos and MAME.
I would like it to also act as an airport express: Is there a program I can run on it so that other laptops can connect and stream their audio to it so it all comes out that same speaker system?
If the search fails, the main backup option is to get an airport express to connect to, and have that running in to a mixer that the media server laptop is also connected to, and have that run in to the stereo. Of course, I'd prefer to not have to buy an airport express.
