8k[bit]ps = 1K[Byte]ps

so

192kbps = 24KBps

So that bitrate would sound right.

If you use 320 kbps that'll make 40KBps, which should be handled fine :) Seeing as raw wav files can stream over a wireless network with little problems usually, you're not going to see any problems with 320k MP3s.

Unless of course you have hundreds of players.
