I grew up with an elder brother who owned an Amiga 1200, and one thing I did enjoy about the Amiga was its audio quality. A number of games that were both on the Amiga and on MS-DOS PCs did sound different music-wise; I guess the differences between the sound chip in the Amiga and the standard Sound Blaster cards of that time are to blame.
If you take games like The Settlers 1, I personally prefer the OST on the Amiga compared to the PC version (even the GUS variant). The DOS version of Settlers 1 supported higher resolutions than the Amiga version, so as with many other early 90ties games, the graphics was better on on the MS-DOS version while the Amiga did a more favorable job audio wise (well, it also comes to personal preferences).
In the DOS era the music often sounded different depending on which sound-card you chose, reminding me of how various sound-card handled midi-files in earlier Windows versions.
Has there been known experiments in the DOSBox community of making the Sound Blaster emulation imitating the sound-bank of the Amiga? I have no clue whatsoever if such a thing could be possible without enormous efforts; I suppose that it would in theory be a much more complex job than just changing up the Sound Blaster instruments in DOSBox one-by-one to create the distinctive Amiga-sound.
