Huh?The gba can only digital though output sound through the MAIN CPU.Meaning they often have to use lower sampling rates,no reverb, less sound channles ect just to maintain a decent speed in games.The GBA did have a sound chip but it was only capable of GB sounds"analog poly synthesis"They often sound the GB sound chip(Z80) for sound effects while they use the main CPU for sound.Sound times even games like Pokemon use the internal sound chip(Z80) for music in conjunction with using sampled instruments instead if sound effects. The Ds had a separate CPU that can handle touch screen,sound and wifi.It was capable of more sound channles and higher sampling rate(A stable rate will be 16 sound channles although it cost output a lot more sound channles at the cost of processing power.)

Although only the DSI(the first Nintendo portable system/reversion to have a sampling rate of a CD.

I think it is TBA still but it will more than likely be better than the DSi's.
