If you set your station to 64K 22.1 sampling rate it sounds good and yes you'll get more listeners as oversease listeners often don't have that extra bandwidth. Plus many cable companies throttle down the Internet speed after so many MB's are downloaded. Actually if you want dial up listeners to be able to listen to your station you'll want to stream in 24K 44.1 sample rate and use AAC+ (which winamp does support and so does iTunes. However iTunes seems to sound Mono at that rate where as Winamp sounds great at 24K AAC+.

Be aware that if you want people to be able to listen from their web browser they won't be able to unless you stream in Mp3 format as Flash doesn't support AAC+ and neither does the Windows Media Player web plugin.

Hope this helps.
