	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.
