Share your audio devices with other computers, play to them over the network as if they are directly connected

Shairwaves is a network audio streaming application which allows you to share your Mac and Linux audio devices and play to them from other Macs, just as OS X shares printers and network drives to be used from other Macs. All device characteristics are shared and appear on your other Macs, allowing high resolution audio and multi-channel output.

Other features:

- unleash your home theatre system to provide 8-ch/24bit/192kHz network audio with just a Raspberry Pi and Shairwaves, all powered from the amp's USB socket

- wireless playback supported: watch an iTunes movie on your MacBook and have the 5.1 audio all around you wirelessly through your home theatre system

- multi-output devices are supported to allow closely-synchronised music all over your house

- remote-control playback from remote device locations, including from Raspberry Pi computers

- change device names to reflect location or function

- each user has their own configuration for which remote devices to have available, as well as the device names and audio settings

- OS support back to Mac OS 10.5 including PowerPC

Shairwaves releases you from the shackles of AirPlay and provides sharing of any audio device connected to a Mac or Linux computer (including Raspberry Pi), allowing devices to be played to from any Mac as if directly connected. Up to 8-channel output is supported with up to 32-bit sample widths and sample rates up to 192kHz, along with encoded 5.1 audio formats, all with a user-settable network latency down to a very low 1/20th second (50ms) delay providing great audio-video synchronisation.
