MP3 Module for MMC64
MP3@64: This module enables your Commodore 64 to play MP3 music files
in high quality. The MP3@64 uses a DSP (Digital Signal Processor) for
MP3 decoding and a separate D/A converter in 20-bit resolution for
high quality sound output. The output can either be taken from
two RCA connectors or from a 4-pin audio connector known from
CD-ROM/DVD drives and sound cards. It is certainly possible to
listen to the MP3 music with active loudspeakers, but it is strongly
recommended to use good High Fidelity equipment to be really able
to get the best out of the MP3@64's excellent audio quality.
This excellent quality was already shown live at the scene party
tUM*o5: the "Streamed Music Competition" during that
party was played on a Commodore 64, using the maximum bit rate
of 320 kbits which MP3@64 is capable of without problems.

nor a generic clockport module, it officially only works with an

that allows to use the MP3@64 on an Amiga clockport.
