a few things to resolve

You capture at 48000 but resample from 44100, that will cause problems.
You resample to 22050 so that will affect quality, you haven't said what 
bitrate you want to target for, so resampling/downmixing may be required

A few secs delay is generally not a problem, but if you want to reduce 
it then reduce the burst-size (eg 0) in icecast and also reduce the 
pre-buffering in the player.
