We default to speex-float-0 in Mandriva too.

I think your choice should be between GStreamer and VLC. I'd test both
to see which works best for you. VLC is still quite young but it's
getting a lot of development of late. You'll probably get differing
opinions. Mandriva and I think Fedora and SuSE, use GStreamer by default
but not 100% certain.

If you do go with GStreamer, there is a patch related to PA output
recently committed that you should add in:
