To transfer your songs, don't use Home Sharing. It uses your network to transfer the songs, and it will be so slow (days or weeks to transfer 82 GB).
Instead, you can copy the whole iTunes library to an external disk and transfer it to your new iMac > http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1751 This is much faster and useful, because you will transfer all your iTunes data from your old Mac, not only songs

Could you not just connect the two iMacs with an ethernet cable and just copy the folder over? So you do not need to buy an external disk?

Thanks Mende, I tried Steve's way and after some complications on my part it worked beautifully, but I appreciate you offering the other solution as well, in case that didn't work.
