Yes. Raw PCM is just below 1400kbit while the ogg stream itself would be
much larger.

10mbit wired (sb1) = 8192kbit (80% efficiency)
11mbit wireless (sb1) = 5632 (50% efficiency)
100mbit wired (sb2) = 81920kbit (80% efficiency)
54mbit wireless (sb2) = 27648kbit (80% efficiency)

The sb1 wireless might be a close call but for everthing else there is no
bandwidth problem, seeing as any sb1 would be connected to 10/100 switches
anyway.

Bandwidth would only be an issue if your network is approaching 100% load
due to other applications.

Don't you mean that the ogg stream would be much *smaller* than raw PCM?
