See the below thread for a lengthy discussion on the current state of
PulseAudio on Windows, including how to obtain a copy of the binaries
as created by Maarten Bosmans (so you wouldn't have to compile it from
source code if you're OK with possibly not using the very latest
To sum it up, you should be able to treat your PulseAudio server on
Windows as if it were running on Linux. Both server-side and
client-side support are supported. That is to say, you can have
PulseAudio clients running on Windows and they are able to playback
either to a local PulseAudio server or to a remote one. And
symmetrically, you can run PulseAudio clients on other computers (even
Linux computers) and play sound to a PulseAudio *server* running on
Windows. So the Windows side can be a Pulse client, Pulse server, or
both. All of it is completely network transparent, but if you involve
multiple computers, then I would recommend a LAN-style gigabit
ethernet uplink (or 100 Mbps at least) between them for best
performance, preferably just a patchover cable from NIC to NIC
(routers add latency).
