We're running some 400 simultaneous calls with recording and no 
transcoding on a 2xQuad-core Intel boxes, 16GB RAM.  The box is serving 
SIP clients and passes calls over an IAX2 trunk to the PSTN-connected 
box.  Load average rarely goes above 0.5.

Recording is done on a RAID array attached to a separate SCSI 
controller, which makes a lot of difference to performance.
