[Jack-Devel] netJACK2 with two nodes

The reason I’m doing this is that I don’t want my loud working machine A in my studio. It sits somewhere else and in my studio I only have the fanless thinclient B. Is there a better way to do this?

Normally, you'd use this sort of design to spread the "load" around, but what you're proposing isn't really spreading any load at all. Any time A is overloaded, it makes no difference that B is running fine - the sound will still glitch.
