My guess is that it is playing in 8-bit mode.  Use mpg123 -vv to verify

If it is, let me know and I'll see if I can help you with it.  If it
is anything like the PNP GUS driver, it doesn't export the names that
mpg123 looks for, and so it cannot find the right mode to play in.
And the 16->8bit conversion is pretty bad.

Please mail me the output of audioctl -a, and mixerctl -a, (me, not
the list) and I'll see if I can help you.
