Yeah, just for the fun of it, I was toying with MP3s. Songplayer came on my ClassicWB FULL, so I tried it.
Now, I have an ACA1230/28, so it's not the top of the line...
The demo song that came with it was terrible. So I started converting down bitrates.
48k was almost workable, but not quite...
32k was the suite spot! (well, very "tinny" mono suite spot )
So, I was listening to a 5 minute song from 1.2M MP3 file!!!

Now, there are better ways to get music on the Amiga, but I was imagining what might have been possible around '93 when MP3s were starting...
I never tried it on my Amiga then (no accelerator), but I can imagine I would have been pretty excited doing that!!!
