High CPU Usage with Winamp 5.31 ?!

I recently bought a new PC and running Windows XP x64 for a few months now.

I used Winamp 2.x for years and was happy with it.

Windows x64 does not support the WMA Codec so i tried Winamp 5.31.

I must say that i hate the fact that Winamp use over 10% cpu usage on my Intel Core 2 Duo E6700.

I installed the software again after removing all old Winamp versions. Same effect. I only installed the plugins i need (WMA, MP3 en MP4 plugin) and the cpu usage is still the same.

I can live with the fact that Winamp now use 16MB of ram instead of 2 with Winamp 2 but not with this high cpu usage.

Some extra info:

The high cpu usage is only this high with MP3's... No trouble with WMA.

Hope someone can help me with this.

System specs:

Intel C2D E6700 2.67 GHz
4 GB of RAM
Soundblaster Audigy 2 Platinum
Windows XP x64 (All updates installed)
