I'm a network administrator so no.  Internet radio just consumes my precious bandwidth, plus its one more thing to manage and secure.

In terms of quality, it depends on specific hardware you are looking at compared to specific hardware and software combinations.  Software is only as good as the hardware it runs on.  It also depends on where its going and what you want to do with.

So your answer really lies with the hardware your pc has and the source of your internet radio, compared to the hardware you are looking at and the source of your internet radio.  If the source is stereo, I don't care if your pc has 7.1 THX, your going to listen in stereo.
