Hi, i'm following the thread of the ongoing topics around transmitting
audio over IP infrastructure.
As a scenario, at point a) an analog signal is injected that will be
played back (analog) at point b) with the lowest possible (and constant)
How do you intend to handle diverging clocks of the audio interfaces
(ADC/DAC) at both (a/b) ends?
