No exactly true about the MP3 format. The record settings need to be
tweaked a bit. My old Sony MD Walkman recorder unit (mini-disc)
could record 2mhz-CPU saved cassette programs from the CoCo, and play
them back in and the CoCo would load them at 2mhz just fine. This
was a pre-MP3 compression scheme as far as I remember, maybe an early
version of what is now MP3. That was back around '90 or '91.
