I use my LX'es as alarm clocks and they'll definitely handle mp3s.
If you're using 128kb samples, decimate them by two or you'll get
odd effects.  If you're also running seti at home on the box you'll
want to decimate them by four.  This is with sol2.6 and mpg123.
Other codecs might do better; I haven't tried.
