I agree with Artisan and Annandale except for one doubt I have…
I have heard complaints from many stations about unfriendly audio characteristics of Windows 7, and have been told that other versions of Windows are even worse for audio. But we are being pushed away from XP, which has tended to work well enough to have a “safe” feel. Poor us.
I would also add that for a business radio station we should protect each client as much as possible, and several dedicated computers is more secure than one computer which can put everybody off the air.
My station was crippled over Christmas because the CD Drive failed and that meant I couldn’t run network programs that are shipped to me on disk. It took two days to fix.
A second computer would have kept me going.
