Then, that laptop would start up JACK, I would set up the routing so that JACK would route everything from line-in to playback, and then PS3 sound would be outputted through my laptop.
Then I would listen to it through headphones.
Now, with RSound, I can reserve my line-in port for other stuff - such as another laptop that I have that runs Foobar2000.
The nice thing about RSound is that it now has JACK support - so I can route RSound to JAMIN (a JACK equalizer) and be able to fiddle around with the audio.
But yeah, another significant feature - this will allow you to record sound - as JACK has a couple of standard recording options.
But perhaps even more significantly is that this validates that we can make use of the PS3's networking facilities just fine - I didn't have any Xruns or sound drops with RSound.
I will eventually want to have Netplay in SNES9x - so that will be one of the next steps.
