Not worth it

Review by Mireiawen
about Airfoil Jul 2011

For background, I did set up a Core 2 Duo with speakers to run the Airfoil Speakers, and streamed audio from Core i7 over a gigabit ethernet. Network should not be a bottleneck, and neither should be computers.

First, the buffer size seems to be approximately 2 seconds, without possibility to even change it? Even for normal music listening it feels too long as track changes are delayed a lot. For any other use, its way too long.

Second, I kept hearing cracking sound like it is still losing some audio, and even some short pauses.
