[PD] Pd & massively multi-channel wi-fi speakers

as far as i know, two major problems
- wireless speakers to be found for sale in the industry are based on the stereophonic paradigm, music coming out of two holes and that’s it
- wireless technology introduces some latency, which is somehow contradictory with the  pd real time approach, even more since the industry runs now after the personal assistant segment, to generate more profit, and this introduces though even more latency, which is in itself not a problem if you playback dead sounds like in the last millenium.

there must be some ways to turn around these problems though, like radios indeed :), but these ways around have to be considered in balance with installing simple cables, and this even more if sound sources are not mobile in space.

i am however always curious to learn about the subject
