Opps! I just found out what was causing the distortion. I very red faced!
I had my the volume on my output.master set to 255,255. I used mixerctl to
lower it done to 128,128 and it sounds great! :-) Still I found it odd that
I was about to play AU files at 255,255 without any distortion but the mpg123
at that volume was severly distorted. Oh well, I am now able to pay MP3 with
near CD quality on my NetBSD box, so I'm happy.
Sorry for bothering everybody. Thanks again. Sincerely, Alicia.
