[pulseaudio-discuss] Controlling where module-rtp-send sends multicast packets?

In an effort to use more of the pc that I already have running 24 7 I have opted to keep the amps right next to the pc and run speaker wiring throughout the house. Thus I have no need for remote nodes throughout the house. All remote contrl will be done via web tablets in the rooms.
I am also a bit of an audio nut and have not had a chance to listen carefully to the audio produced by this soution. If pulse fails I can always build/buy a hardware audio matrix switch and put it with the amps.
Im happy to share whatever I have or give thoughts, although I am new to pulse too.

i wouldn't have thought you'd need or want a local audio card at
all (unless you need local playback). why aren't the sources for
your 4 zones, which feed your remote sinks, all strictly virtual?
