You probably refer to ices2

reencoding from one lossy format to another lossy format can introduce
severe loss of quality. You'll have to experiment with all the 
parameters available in ogg/vorbis (sampling rate, quality, 
stereo/mono,...) and maybe try other codecs too. I don't know if there 
is broad player support for speex.

reduce the buffer size in the real audio client.
