Is A Sound Card Required For Music Player Daemon?

I am running FBSD 6.0 on a headless system with no sound card.  What I 
had hoped to do was get Music Player Daemon running on this box and then 
send it's output to Icecast2.  The actual "sound" would be generated by 
other devices with sound cards.

But in looking over the mpd.conf file, it appears a sound card is 
needed.  Does Icecast then take the "sound" and re-digitize it in its 
own format?  I'm confused.

Thanks for a kick in the right direction.
