Now I'm very confused.
You asked about running wire from a server to sound equipment in each
room. No mention of a PC.
Now you're talking a client. That is presumably hooked up to and
controls speakers (or receivers or whatever).
So ... why is each client not controlling the sound / why do you need
additional wire? And, it seems to me Brent has shown in the past that
sound on a machine in directly net addressable.
So if you're ethernet wired, why not use / transit it? Be it directly,
or via the clients.
