I use Audioactive v1.3 (shareware) with fairly good results.  It's
16-bit, accomodates both 486's and Pentiums.  I have a 486/DX2-66 with
32 Mb RAM.  It plays 1 second, drops out for two, then plays the rest
of any length selection just fine, in stereo.  In mono, it will do the
whole job without a hitch.  Not sure which is more limiting, CPU or
RAM though.  Version 1.3 is abandonware, Audioactive doesn't even
archive it themselves; hardly even admit that it ever existed.
Somebody may have its download somewhere, but I haven't seen any for
some time now. S'pose I could share what I have if it seems like it
might tickle your fancy.
