There are, of course, also the legal implications/considerations of Broadcast.

Whats the point though? Think about the extra heat and power consumption.

What is so intense about broadcasting over the internet other than the bandwith? Are you doing something like a shoutcast / Icecast server? What do you have at the moment and why isnt it good enough?

thanks for the suggestions
the 5000+ listeners is highly exaggerated, but i have a friend who hosts his own radio for 4+ yrs and now he has an absurd bandwidth and his traffic cost is insane nowadays.
this project will have at least 100 - 500 listeners in the begining but we can expect a jump in the traffic so i think better be prepared than sorry.

we have servers i nave never even seen, for the main site.
they wish to add a sub domain or perhaps register a new domain name and the new site will have nothing to do with the old one, it.e. this is why they need a new machine.
the idea is to have some "radio host (like a DJ)" in a studio with a web cam and do a live show along with the streaming music, and chat with online listeners as well.
also there will be a podcast, that users can download anytime they wish to via itunes/ipod or songbird,foobar, etc
the implementation will be done via professionals and the server will be placed in a farm along with other machines.
i just need to tell my boss what machines to buy.
the data center has solid bandwidth and is being operated by one of the biggest ISPs in my country.

as far as i know the main bottle necks are RAM and HDD. so i guess run hardware raid on a windows server box (i have experience with windows, and not much with linux/bsd derivates) along with apache and ICECAST or fireflymedia server or something similar. or stay away from winb00z and do it with linux? i am afraid of driver issues and patches and i don't like to read through 10 pages of MAN to do a simple thing

we will a professional web design and implementation team to write us the website. or perhaps use some CMS and mod it?
also for the site do you think cutting edge stuff like AJAX or html5 for the front end for our site or stick to more "classic" approaches
uff so many questions
sorry
i hope i clarified a bit

From my experience of shoutcast (Several years ago) you could set it up so its like the following ie the pc streams to the main server, the 3 servers then stream from the main server. would negate the point of having a very expensive server build by having 4 mid range ones

Your server builds look OK for 500 listeners and a website. When you get more listeners you can always add another server if necessary.
