Bug Description

Hi,

It would be very handy if we could combine multiple devices into one speaker configuration. For example if I could use my Bluetooth sound bar as rear left and right channels together with laptop's built in speakers as front left and right unto a 4.0 speaker configuration for surround sound.

I believe this is possible, but there is no user interface to do this yet. I think module-combine-sink may do what you are after if you are willing to get your hands dirty with pacmd.

Thanks for the heads-up. I'll give it a try.
GUI interface for that would also be handy, though.

I just checked the docs and it should be doable in combination with
module-remap-sink.
