This one caught my interest too...more out of curiosity! Keep in mind that
RS485 max speed drops to 100kbps after a relatively short distance. And,
100kbps is RAW speed. If you encapsulated your audio stream in that you'd
lose another 10%.
So why are you doing this? If you are running a 100m cable (4 wire +
shield) why not just pull at cat5/6 cable instead? Or just send analog
audio over 2 of the wires with the shield to keep out hum. If there is a
need to use rs485 you could stream your audio over that connection - but I'm
curious why first.
We did some work for broadcast (radio station) doing AoIP and converting
some analog feeds but this seems unusual.

Ok, I'll bite. How does one do audio over RS485?
I've never worked with RS485, but from some brief googling it looks
like it's a fancy version of RS232. I'm not sure where you'd get
(analog) audio from on RS232.
