I've done that too.  I played some .wav files from my Linux box that was
connected to the VIC-20's user port.  And Adam Bergström has written a SID
emulator for the VIC-20.  But that's nothing new; similar programs have
been written and used on the C16.

Exactly.  Only a few low octaves are somewhat usable.  High frequencies
suffer most.
