Oh well, better tell the good lady of the house I need some more kit. Any
idea of the recommended hardware requirements for 5 separate conversions? I
would probably prefer a Linux box as I can take advantage of the cheaper AMD
hardware rather than getting another Mac.

Thanks for the help

Sorry, but no and no. The Squeezebox can accept PCM directly, but the
SliMP3 only accepts MP3 streams. Dean and Sean are pretty careful to say
what they mean, so I don't believe you can generalize Squeezebox mentions
to imply SliMP3. Also, remember that the SliMP3 feature set is frozen.
Any new features to be had will be only on Squeezebox (or whatever the
Next Slim Thing is).
