I'll throw out a couple of other ideas. Get a low power fm transmitter
connected to audio line out on your streaming server. Then use a stereo
receiver to tune into the channel. A friend of mine built a heathkit fm
transmitter and used it to play Christmas music for cars that drove by
his house looking at his lights/display/etc...
Another option would be a networked audio receiver (slimp3 or similar)
and powered speakers.
