That could be an option, as new computers has quite some power to spend.

Any example? Never heard of any such program running in realtime. (As mp3
is the only soundsource I ever use it makes me sort of like mpg123 as a
player, could the output of mpg123 be piped to a somple rate converter?)

I'd rather investigate the SB compat mode before trying any 3rd part
converter for everyday use.
