Dominik,

I'm afraid you are mistaken. The MAS DOES have CoDec support.
Rockbox just don't have what it takes to write them.
The WAV CoDec was eventually given to Rockbox by Micronas (iirc),
but has still never been integrated.
What we need is someone with the political and technical skills
required to bring MAS CoDec integration to Rockbox.
