I'm setting up a multi-room house audio system using SLIMP3 and/or
Squeezebox devices. My main objective is to to have synchronized
MP3/internet radio playback throughout the house with the option of
un-synching as the need arises.

I'm sold on the technology, now I'm looking at how to best install these
puppies so they're convenient, easy to access, and such. I'm interested in
how these set up and any lessons learned/best practices around those
"useability" aspects such as:

How to mount/physically place the SLIMP3 or SBox ?
Any suggestions on good quality powered speakers and how to mount them?
(I plan to hook only one device to the "old" stereo system, so most devices
will need a set of powered speakers)
Is there a nice looking wall panel approach anyone has devised? (I'm
actually thinking of mounting some of them in the wall with a seperate
volume up/down/on/off nob as an alternative to using the remote)

Is there a proven technique to encode (real time) my own live MP3 streams
and serve them up, e.g. for the local radio station that doesn't offer
internet radio? I assume there's some xtra software required to do this,
something like icecast.

Any helpful setup experience is much appreciated.
