The Barix instreamer converts an audio source to an MP3 stream on the fly.

So a PC may not be necessary after all :)

This is the functionality that I was originally wondering about. Problem is
another $300 or more for the Instreamer, and not sure if theres a built-in
wireless option - hence why I was wondering if the sqeezebox could be
adjusted to suit :) - Less cost and built-in WIFI

there you go, the answer to my wife's requirement to listen to the BBC R4
archive. Play on one machine off the beeb web site (realaudio), line-out
into line-in on another and "slimp" it to the kitchen! [new verb "to
slimp"]
