My educated guess is that the link from the chip to the hdd is serial ...We
must be able to stream WAV data INTO the chip, else it would not be able to
encode it to MP3 ...however, if the link from the chip to the hdd/memory is
serial then it would not be able to pump the data back out as fast as it
was reading it in?
