You're welcome, and thanks for the info.  :)
Does it actually sound better at that frequency?  XD

Here's a cheesy video of when I got the Mega Everdrive WAV playing working:

And a better video showing the various mods done to my Nomad after I put it all back together (and used the proper resistors, ehehe).

You're all of one tenth of one percent off! How can you NOT HEAR THAT?!?!?! ;)   :D

I suppose if you have perfect pitch you probably could, but the average person won't notice a thing. If you resampled to a "standard" frequency of 22050 (half CD rate) you'd be .35% off. Still undetectable by most average humans, but if you have any friends with perfect pitch you could drive them nuts... "Can't you hear that?" "Hear what? Sounds fine to me!" :D

May I ask why is there so much interest around WAV playback? Don't you guys have better ways of playing your music?

Better? Yes. Cooler? No.  8)

To be serious, some folks may have the stereo and/or computer in a different room from the game consoles and/or TV. Some family member may have the stereo and/or computer tied up with something else, and you are left with just the Sega. I sometimes have the computer busy doing stuff, and leave my 32X playing MOD, XM, or OGG music in the background.

Most people would just use their phone but over the years I've concluded that using a phone is the worst thing for music playing or gaming, since it kills your battery and slows it down for the communication functions you need it for the most.  That and its a pain to plug it in or remove the card thru a case to update its files.

If I have a game system with me, the one I'd have the easiest time copying music to is the one with the easiest removable media access, and the Mega Everdrive one is so very convenient, except for the need to have to convert the files. 

When I travel to conventions, and retro gaming ones in particular, its fun to pack a portable game system with a video input to test all the crap I end up buying, and for gaming parties and the like.   My Nomad is set up to do this, and having the ability to play a huge game library, and now music when I'm on the road is great!  The li-ion batteries I use are cheap, very portable and last many hours.  I'm all for adding of neat extra features that enhance the usage of our devices, even if they're for old beloved favorites.   Besides, its just freakin' cool.  :D

Still hoping for low bitrate DIVX/XVID playback in the future.  XD

Not gonna happen. MPEG video (any level) is beyond anything lower than the Dreamcast. The N64 MIGHT handle super-low-res, super-low-bitrate xvid with special RSP library, but it's easier and better to just do something like cinepak or RoQ instead.

Video?

Didn't the Doctor V64 support VCD's?

Not that i've ever even seen a Video Compact Disk. . . But still.

Yes, it does... using a Winbond W9925 MPEG-1 A/V Decoder chip.

As far as I know you have to use an audio editing program like Audacity to save your audio file as .WAV 22kHz, 8 bit. Someone correct me if I'm wrong.
