another nerd wish: low latency network audio


As usual I’ve got a very strange wish what nobody else seems to have on this planet. I have several computers of different platforms. And on one of this machines there are speakers attached…I want to have the possibility to output from any of the machines to the speakers. And please loss-less and low latency!

Unfortunately there’s nothing available that would do that… but there are some good starts like these:


Pinhead


Pinhead, an Airtunes stream receiver Currently only supports streaming from Airfoil, further support coming soon.”



FairPort is an open-source “emulator” for AirTunes base stations. It will recieve lossless music streamed across a local network.”

    Hi,
    I was wondering whether you still have copies of those two programs. It seems they’ve dropped off the face of the planet and I can’t find them anywhere.

    If you do, I would love it if you could send me an email.

    Thanks!

    Does anyone know where I can download any of these programs?

    I’ve searched everywhere, there is no sign of the programs anywhere. Do you have local copy of the programs? Either Fairport or Pinhead. I would love it, if you could e-mail me…

    Simon DK.
