wav28svx was roughly 4.5 times faster than sox. I did tested only on my Linux machine, but i think on Amiga, the difference would be even more bigger.

wav28svx is clearer, sox is more muffled.

System requirements for sox on Amiga are:
- 68020 or greater CPU
- 6888x
- At least 4096 kB free disk space
- At least 4096 kB free RAM
- HDD (you cannot run a 3.5 MB exe from floppy)
- Fast RAM (you cannot load a 3.5 MB exe into 2 MB or less Chip RAM)
- KickStart 2.0 or greater
- ixemul.library

System requirements for wav28svx on Amiga are:
- Any 680x0 CPU
- 6888x or mathieeedoubbas.library
- At least 18 kb free disk space
- At least 32 kb free RAM
- Any KickStart

In short: sox will run on only heavily expanded machines, while wav28svx runs on any Amigas, stock or expanded.
