Any way to get better performance, even at lower quality?  It's so choppy that it is virtually unusable.

    Its not ment to play sounds over slow wan links. Works fine over the WAN for me. Playing a WMA file at 96k. Sounds as good as localy playing.

    How fast is your WAN/clients's link?

    I've got SBC DSL...supposed to be 3000/375 coming from my Comcast connection which is 300/375.  So my limiting WAN speed for playing sound is the SBC 375 up speed.  Very choppy.  I'll try it on the local LAN tomorrow morning.

    I changed the configuration of some switches and that dramatically improved the sound.  Your comment drove me to look deeper because I knew that someone had it working ok.  Thx.
