hi everyone

For my diploma work on streaming music, I'm looking into 
cost of handling a large amount of users.

Somehow I couldnt find some experience on the net about 
how many concurrent streams a single box could handle 
using icecast (without encoding, just the streaming 
of pre-encoded mp3-files).

Does anybody have some experience that I could include 
as a reference point ?

Thanks !
