Your method of linking audio to your transmitter using Zara and a spare computer is a kind of “Network Media Player”, a term I just woke up to after reading Radio8Z’s “XM” post, and takes on special interest because I’m exploring ways of replacing FM as the link carrier.
By coincidence today B&H Video Pro Audio just sent a fat catalog of goodies, and they show two pages of Digital Media Players.
But, all the players include video, and I would prefer audio only.
According to the Wiki link on the subject, audio-only players were developed as far back as 2000, so it’s a matter of plenty of research to find what’s out there now.
I will also need to understand what card or device to add to my main computer to wirelessly send the stream to the Network Media Player.
On top of all this, I am one of those people that believes that microwaves can contribute to tumors and other health disorders, yet my cordless phone is right here and probably needs to be moved farther away.
Even if this ends up being a dead-end side trip, it makes for a fascinating discussion.
