Multi speakers wireless in sync, Technology not there ?

Mon Apr 02, 2018 3:09 am

Hi,

Looking for a solution to keep in sync 10+ speakers (with volume control / speaker) playing music from one server / device,
which streams non-stop.

I've tried so far:
I am open to any other options, other RF chips, FM modulators, as long can keep the speakers in sync. (with smart control over volume/speaker)

Thank you.

Have you looked at Logitech Media Server aka squeezeserver aka slimserver and its software client squeezelite?

That does sync over ipv4, ethernet or wifi.

forked-daapd and shairport-sync work for me.

Had it working and in sync with 4 sets of speakers.

forked-daapd is an itunes/airplay server
shairport-sync is the corresponding client.

Far as I know both are open source, and shairport-sync also works with other airplay sources.
Attempts to contact me outside of thes forums will be ignored unless signed in triplicate, sent in, sent back, queried, lost, found, subjected to public enquiry, lost again, and finally buried in soft peat for three months and recycled as firelighters

The OP needs to clarify what he means by "in sync".

LMS is certainly able to have the same source playing on speakers in different rooms and the relative delays can be adjusted. But multiple speakers in the same room or large hall is a different ball game.
