Can sound better if you can preprocess samples in particular way - typical Amiga player for almost sure (never analysed code) will not use dither neither noiseshaping to improve subjective quality - in this moment correct resampling (which itself is quite difficult and demanding task) and dither with noishaping is better to perform not on Amiga (at least on bare and slow Amiga without DSP).
