Airfoil Extends and Enhances Audio Streaming

Airfoil acts as a hub, routing audio from your Mac to anything connected to your local network. Between technologies like AirPlay and Bluetooth, I initially wondered what purpose Airfoil served. It wasn’t until I got eight devices streaming at once in perfect sync that I started to see some of the interesting possibilities. Rogue Amoeba recently released version 5 of Airfoil, which includes a newly designed interface that fits in nicely with El Capitan, streaming to Bluetooth devices, and deep integration with Airfoil Satellite for iOS, Mac, and other platforms, which allows you to control Airfoil for Mac and audio playback, remotely. Airfoil also has twenty-one equalizer presets to help you dial in a particular sound for your music. – John Voorhees, MacStories
