As said earlier, the signal to noise ratio of the D'Music was
a brilliant 90db (which is very close to a normal CD player's
95db). While assessing the sound quality we played a number
of MP3s ranging from classical to hard-hard rock. We also used
different MP3 files ranging from 32Kbps up to 192Kbps.
quality of the D'music was excellent. MP3s played back crisp
