I have a board w/ the ESS1488 chip on it running my system. The comp. is not yet installed in my car, but it seems to be working fine in dos on the bench. I have some noticeable background static but I think that may be a grounding/sheilding issue.
Still working the bugs out, but it does work
pretty well, even on my 486-overdrive. The
system hovers at about 50-60% cpu usage while playing.
Well, I was using MPXPLAY and <a href="http://amp.mp3car.com">AMP2</a>.
However, I found out the reason I had so much static. It turns out that the 1488 chip is only 8bit. I couldn't find out any info on the chip and I assumed it was SB16 compat.
Oh well, so much for using this old system (at least it was free).
I hope you have one of the ESS16XX or 18XX chips.
