Thanks, this seems to be a step in the right direction. I'll try setting up
the server on my Debian box. The only issue that seems problematic is the
windows part: I only found non-GUI version, and what I need is a virtual
soundcard driver with some GUI to facilitate switching sound destinations.

Any help on that? I know this is a Debian ML, but what I'm trying to achieve
involves Debian as the most important part. ;)

Best regards, KT
