A bash scripts which displays properties of an audio stream from source to sink (alsa)

`mpd-monitor` is a bash script which displays the properties of an audio stream as played by Music Player Daemon (mpd).

Besides the common mpd meta values of the current stream, like title, artist and source (url), it displays the detailed audio properties of the source stream or file, the way mpd interprets it, and the way the stream is handled by alsa (and thereforehanded over to the DAC).

It can be used as a real life bit-perfectness monitor.
