The 68302 is not that likely. If I remember rightly it will cost most
of $100 (I should check that).
As for sound, I was thinking of that, but something that could be somewhat
useful to the DSP guys. This would mean at least a 30KHz variable sample
rate DAC with a variable filter; This is starting to smell of creeping
