[Icecast] Icecast and AAC streams

All the broadcasters on the server which I support deliver their
content in MP3 format. Recently, there's been interest in supplying a
second AAC stream at half the bandwidth but with the same audio
quality (64kbps AAC versus 128kbps MP3) like TuneInRadio does for
delivering their content regardless of the source. I've thought of
using a third-party product called Stream Transcoder, but am dubious
as to whether it will do the job. Does anyone know of a better or more
efficient way to do this? I know the MP3 stream requires re-encoding
into AAC format, but am not sure of the proper tool to use to do it.

As always, thanks in advance.
