Ever try online music through your preamp?

Would you rate the sound quality as good as an FM broadcast? My machine is a long way from my preamp and I need to buy a 25 ft interconnect to try it.
I have been using music match cd quality radio through a stereo link(usb). I realy enjoy the versatility but this set up is not quite cd quality, but better than FM. My distance is nearly as long so I have used a usb hub, 2 long usb cables and 2M interconnects from the stereo link to my pre.
