Actually, I was looking at a project where someone took a Linksys router, put OpenWRT on it, added a USB sound card and used it to receive streaming audio. I was thinking of doing something similar. He used an LCD display to show the track info, but for me, I don’t think I’d need that.
At this point, what I’m considering, is using a few dumb clients like that with a server that would stream one thing to all and using a PDA to control the stream to them.
Do check the NLSU2 project. The whole reason I commited the oggdec tremor package was someone was doing that exact thing — using the slug as a usb-audio player and needed it to decode ogg in realtime.
Openslug is a good “bare-bones” distro, if you want to start with something exceptionally slim. If you want better functionality and more pre-built packages, look toward unslung.
