I have recently compiled mpg123 version 0.59o with its recent NetBSD
support using "make netbsd-i386".  I have a genuine 16 bit Sound Blaster
card, which NetBSD reports during its boot as:

	sb0 at isapnp0 port 0x220/16,0x330/2,0x388/4 irq 5 drq 1,5
	sb0: Creative SB16 PnP Audio: dsp v4.13
Which should mean that I get the full 16 audio support.  However when I
use it to play MP3 (which I can play with CD quality under Win95 using
winamp), on my Pentium 166 MMX PC, I get am able to hear every word, but
the distortion makes it sound like a badly tuned radio station.

What am I doing wrong.  I would appreciate hearing from anyone who was
able to play MP3 with CD (crystal clear) clarity on NetBSD.  I'm jealous
of my Win95 and Mac co-workers who get CD quality from their MP3 players
and want the same for NetBSD.

Thank you in advance, Alicia.

PS. Doing a "make netbsd" doesn't help either.
