Hi MACDIV,

 

Welcome to our community!

 

My apologies, but I'm not that familiar on setting up wireless speaker system. May you be able to explain what would be the role of the Orbi on this? Was the Orbi will only be providing a WLAN to your speakers so that they can communicate to each other and will also be handling its IP address?

@MACDIV,

 

I believe this RBK50 or Orbi 3000 can handle upto 250 clients connected over the wifi. So definitely, it can handle your 40 speakers.

So 250 clint can connect all together ....Thats very good ,,But is the audio streaming will not going to take all the band width for the internal network ....the Audio is 296Kb/s and 24Bit resolution

Okay basic math here

1 Mbs = 1024 Kbs

you have 40 speakers with audio resolution of 296KBs/per speaker or 2.3125 MBs

So 2.3125 x 40 = 92.5 MBs required for simultanious audio streaming.
