Nope. mpd is client/server, so the server plays and clients control. I've
got mpd clients installed on my laptop and my desktop, as well as my phone
(but I have to be on wifi).

Why go wireless when you can go wired? Plus I'd have to buy new equipment
for each room.

Somewhat decent quality is important to me (I'm playing FLAC rips), but
quality is probably going to be limited more by the onboard sound, or my
low-end speakers.
