At this point I was wrong: I was not aware that MAD Newton is capable of
playing 24kbps mono streams, But still, compared to 48kbps CD quality this
is still poor. But most probably it will improve the sound much more if you
connect a headphone.

Just try it and have fun! I am curious to read what results you could
