I use mp3 on a Newt for listening to the French language courses. I have it
in mp3 at mono 21050 kHz 16 kb/s - it takes very little space (around 600 k
for a 5min lesson) and has good enough quality for speech. And I can
practice anywhere anytime without additional hardware. I only wish that
MadMax would also support lower sample rates (11 or 8 kHz) so I could make
even smaller "speech" mp3's.
