Whatever one is in use now, shits all over my music. Listening on a decent pair of speakers is not even worth it, it just reveals how much high frequencies are completely mangled into a noisy mess. Since a lot of hardware these days seems to only support 48khz, software resampling has to be done to play (ripped) CDs, and wherever the existing one is, it sucks. (dmix? In the kernel?) The crossfade plugin for xmms can do resampling, the "best sinc interpolator" sounds real nice but eats 30% cpu time on a 2ghz Athlon 64 (!).
