[Icecast] IceCast and ICES

I’ve successfully implemented IceCast on a Raspberry Pi and can access the stream ONLY if I use an ffmpeg statement to start the stream. Unfortunately, the stream is choppy and the sound quality is poor.  I’ve tried using ICES, but I don’t get any sound.

Terminal command that works:
ffmpeg -ac 2 -f alsa -i hw:0,0 -acodec mp3 -ab 48k -ac 2 -content_type audio/mpeg -f mp3 icecast://source:password@ipaddress:port/stream

ICES terminal command that doesn’t work:
ices2 /home/pi/ices-2.0.2/conf/ices-alsa.xml

What am I missing?  Thanks for any help/suggestions.
