You might be able to accomplish this using a SGI Octane, they feature
AES/BEU and lightpipe inputs. The problem is Icecast might not know how to
handle the input of an IRIX host. The good news is that good documentation
exists as far as interfacing to IRIX. The workstations can be had cheap,
the OS might be a little bit harder to find if the box doesn't come with
it. You can use GCC From freeware.sgi.com, or MipsPro which requires a
license ($$$$).
