I have all my music ripped to a mac mini/server setup, and will be hard-wiring via ethernet to several locations in my house, all to be equipped with sb2's. while i know that i can access from all sb's at once, can the access be simultaneous (i.e., so that, during a party, i can play the same music in all rooms)?

This should work fine. I've got two wired SB2s that are permanently synced and I've not known them to lose sync.

There are a couple of minor points to bear in mind:
1) If you turn on a player that is synced then there will be a glitch (they either restart the current track or move to the next one, I can't remember which at the moment).
2) If you are playing music where there are no gaps between the tracks (live albums / mix CDs) then I get a very small gap in playback as each track starts. This is because the SB2s resync at every track. This is not noticeable on tracks that have gaps between them.
