Hello,

I am hoping this community can point me in the right direction. I am looking for a recommendation for an inexpensive audio only encoding appliance. I came across the Barix Instreamer 100, which seems to do the trick. It is cheap (about $400), supports multicast, web based management, and encodes MP3 audio. I'd like to offer my users local radio stations on their computers via multicast. This would be on a high performance corporate LAN.

I was wondering if there were any other products out there that I might be overlooking. I'd like to have the option to multicast AAC audio, as well as have an encoding appliance that can take multiple RCA style line inputs (from rack mounted FM radio tuners), and can encode and transmit to multiple multicast addresses. (Maybe something like several Instreamer 100s in a single box)

Thanks,
Paul c.

I'm looking for a 20 channel audio monitoring support subsystem with possibly 50 users per channel and I'm about to evaluate a Barix instream 100 unit. Did you come across anything else?

Sorry, I did not discover any other solution.
