Here is a simple example using OpenPA to play sound data on the local PulseAudio server.

// Just requires the following usings
using System;
using System.Threading.Tasks;
using OpenPA;
using OpenPA.Enums;

// Somewhere in your Program class
static async Task Play()

    PAContext context = new(MainLoop.Instance, "TestApp");
    bool connected = await context.ConnectAsync(null);

    if (!connected)

    ServerInfo? serverInfo = await context.GetServerInfoAsync();

    string? sinkName = serverInfo?.DefaultSinkName;

    if (!String.IsNullOrWhiteSpace(sinkName))
        SampleSpec sampleSpec = new()
            Channels = 1,
            Format = SampleFormat.S16LE,
            Rate = 44100,

        AudioStream audioStream = AudioStream.CreateMonoStream(context, "MyAudioStream", sampleSpec);
        audioStream.SetStateCallback((stream) => Console.WriteLine("Stream created."));
        audioStream.SetStartedCallback((stream) => Console.WriteLine("Started."));
        await audioStream.ConnectPlaybackAsync(sinkName, null, StreamFlags.NOFLAGS);

        byte[] buffer = System.IO.File.ReadAllBytes("sounds.bin");

        AudioBuffer? audioBuffer = audioStream.BeginWrite((uint)buffer.Length);
        if (audioBuffer != null)
            await audioStream.DrainAsync();
