The issue is in the Audio library for AndroidDevice.cc in the GetDelay method. It is set to 120000 right now and it would need to be enhanced to be aware of the actual time difference on the handset that it takes from when the write command is made to OpenSL audio engine.

The AllJoyn Audio Service is intended to be an alright form of synchronization. One thing you will find is when you use the Service for long term audio playback there will be drift and cause the devices to become out of sync.

@yossi-setiawan The nature of the GetDelay method is to ask the Audio Driver how long it takes to play the audio once it receives the bytes. The OpenSL audio engine does not have the ability to get this value, so it was set to a value based on a few devices. For Linux alsa has an API that is used for to get the delay. Different platforms may have different delay values.
