Despite the recent advances in the wireless networking technology, wireless multichannel digital audio delivery is not yet efficiently realized, because of the additional implementation issues raised for managing possible distortions introduced. In this work, a novel, open-architecture, software platform for evaluating wireless digital audio distribution is presented. This tool facilitates the assessment of real-time playback distortions induced by variable packet reception delays and packet losses, typically encountered in WLAN transmissions. Moreover, this platform can be also employed for producing audio streams corresponding to the wirelessly delivered digital audio, in order to investigate the audibility of such distortions.
