Why do you suggest that high quality MP3s need a higher spec machine to replay? Encoding an MP3 is increasingly cpu intensive as the quality decreases and the compression increases, so perhaps the reverse is true? ie to convert a low quality mp3 to 16bit / 44Khz is harder than with a high one. To take it to extremes, as compression -> 0 you get to raw files which my A1200 played four of at a time.

Just a thought
