33 <para>The Network Audio System is a network transparent, client/server
34 audio transport system used to read , write and play audio files in many
35 formats including <filename>.au</filename>, <filename>.snd</filename>,
36 <filename>.voc</filename>, <filename>.wav</filename>,
37 <filename>.aiff</filename>, <filename>.aif</filename> and
38 <filename>.iff</filename>. It can be described as the audio equivalent
39 of an <application>X</application> server.</para>
40
41 <para><application>NAS</application> is an older sound server included
42 in BLFS primarily because it is an optional dependency for several
43 packages. Unless you know you need <application>NAS</application>, it
44 is probably not needed at all.</para>
45
46 <para>There may be a more recent release available from the
47 <application>NAS</application> home page. You can check
48 <ulink url="http://nas.codebrilliance.com/"/> and probably use the
49 existing BLFS instructions. Note that versions other than the one shown
50 in the download URLs have not been tested in a BLFS environment.</para>
