If the Arrakis isn't doing it for you, take a look at the Autonomic Controls Mirage Media Server. I would say that's currently the best Music Server. It can be integrated well with most control systems, unlike Sonos.
But, a standalone Sonos system might be a consideration, too.
I'm a big fan of in-wall keypads for control (and metadata). They don't walk away, unlike iPods and iPads.
Your choice of network hardware will depend much on your choice of control system, and who's installing it. I'd leave that choice to the integrator.
