Hmmm. The most promising, but not cheapest option is a hardware decoder. German c't magazine had an article on this a while ago and the kit can be bought from www.segor.de, maybe for about $100 with all needed parts. The device is fed with MP3 data via the printer port, so a C64 front end is a possibility. Someone already ported it to Amiga, for using it on the CDTV which fits your HiFi equipment very nicely. But a C64 without a _fast_ hard disk will probably be even to slow to supply the MP3 file at the needed speed. What are popular rates for MP3s? 128 and 160kbit/s? A 1541 won't do this ;-) Nicolas - This message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing list. To unsubscribe: echo unsubscribe | mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
