I was thinking maybe a BW issue as when you do LMS ==> sync group
(including AirPlay device turned into virtual SB), LMS sends all streams
to players using the native track format you play (flac, mp3) but when
you stream from AirPlay, you add one upstream at 1411kbps (44.1*16*2) +
then LMSl downstreams to all players are 1411kps, including to the
bridge that then re-stream that to the physical AirPlay device. But if
you say that even with 2 real SB and 1 virtual SB it fails, then there
is something else ... complicated
