Hello,
I would like to know if anyone has tried to remote a MAC with Squeezecontroller in order to use the MAC as a Squeezebox Receiver ?

Is it possible or just a dream ?

The point is to be able to use an internal sound card (such as Lynxstudio or RME HDSP) with high resolution rate (24bits/192khz)

Have you tried Squeezeplay (which emulates a stand alone Squeezebox)? I am mostly using it as a remote for my Squeezeboxes (much faster than the web ui btw). It is also able to act as regular SB client and works fine with MacOS X 10.6.5.

How well does it sync on the Mac? I have tried this on a PC, and it used to Sync but that stopped working properly a couple of years back. Using a Mac now, and if it syncs with my other squeezeboxes, I'll definitely give it a try again.

Just tested it. Using the latest nightly seems to work fine.

Is it possible to play 24/96 or 24/192 files ?
