The OMAP5910 in the E3 is just barely fast enough to play mp3s
if the bitrate is pretty low; you do need to use an integer decoder,
as it has no floating point hardware. However, the audio hardware
is not really up to the job, so you'll either need to modify your e3
(no, I'm not sure what the options are) or use a USB audio device.
