The Network Audio System (NAS) was developed by NCD for playing,
recording, and manipulating audio data over a network. Like the X
Window System, it uses the client/server model to separate
applications from the specific drivers that control audio input and
output devices.
This package contains the NAS daemon (nasd), needed for local output
from NAS.
