salon speaker system

Want to replace the small stereo in all our retails stores with PC based
speakers. Need to replace these as they often break or staff forget to
turn change music or whatever.. Many pubs these days seem to play music
off there PC so want to setup something like that...

But three problems I see so far
1. speaker cable length, ones like creative and others dont seem to be
able to have long speaker length..
2. Is how to deliver the music. Would prefer some device that can play
all day without interference. But also small and not a PC as all the
shops use Terminal Services devices so there are no real PC in the
shops.. Was thinking a cheap media player any suggestions??
3. Last thing is I would love to be able to play different music at the
same time but thru different speakers. Like in one half of the shop play
relaxation music and the other half play smooth jazz...Although I dont
think this is possible on one system right??

Please anyone with any suggestions would be appreciated.
WIth specific brands..cost is imprtant as the volume would always be low.

Though I myself won't pay for it, how about satellite radio?

By The Way - playing music in a retail environment requires that you pay royalties. Probably nearly no-one does, though.
