thank you for responding!
that is good to know about the speakers then.
But re the audio chipset, I am not sure? The mp3 must be read and converted- the tempo changed. Does the audio chipset do that? Not the cpu? I am trying a couple of programs- one is called CluDJProDJ and it has a llittle CPU usage bar at the top. And ya, it crashed once on my 1.6 GHz.
That's kindof why I intially posted this in the audio forum...... I will ask over there.
Thank you again for responding
