Thanks for your quick reply.
I wasn't able to create an acceptable result using combine. But this may very
well be due to none optimal configurations.

Is it possible that the choppy sound I still get is due to mismatch between
the rate and number of channels on the net to the rate and channels used
by pulseaudio or alsa?

Anyway is it fair to say that pulseaudio is not designed to provide 
synchronous audio distributed over networks?

Best regards,
