Neither.  It used JACK with the Dummy driver; output was by means of the GlassCoder ICES client to IceCast.  The logical next step will be to try it with some sort of AoIP (NetJACK or LiveWire).  I have no idea if KVM supports a full class 2 multicast implementation (needed for LiveWire), so it’ll be an interesting experiment.

Both on a external, dedicated server (not virtualized).  A straight BroadcastAppliance 2 setup (CentOS 6), with audio stores shared via NFS.
