Adrian, I don't think that reading audio data would be the worst problem. It's a two ways communication here, so you have also to capture and encode audio from your microphone.

Not only do you have you the problem of encoding audio from the sound card (always a heavier process than decoding) in realtime at the same time as decoding it from the received IP packets but audio capture suffer from the fact that RISC OS has no API for sound capture.

I don't now if sound capture cards are still available for the RPC but since IIRC both the Iyonix and the A9Home come with a microphone socket, it would be nice to have Castle and ROL to talk to each other for once and define a standard API.
