Ok, I upgraded my winamp about a week ago. Since then I have only played CD's and WAV's. The WAV's have played fine, although it was hard to tell they were low quality. Tonight my friend gave me a whole mess of MP3's. They sound like a CD on a record player, which was impossible because the MP3 play fine in Windows Media Player and are 128Kbs. At first it sounded like the speakers were shot, but a CD played fine a minute later in winamp. I've screwed with all of the settings I can think of, but none of them inprove the sound quality. What is the proper course of action?

1. turn off the winamp equalizer by clicking on the top-right button in the equalizer window.

2. could be that your video card is taking bus from your sound card. open system.ini, under the [display] section, add this line:
busthrottle=1
if you don't have a [display] section then just add one in.

After further analysis I think the upper frequencies are being over amplified. However when the EQ is turned off the problem dosen't correct itself.

Bug fixed

I finally figured out the problem. I had installed a plug-in which was amping all of the highs and lows to the max. Don't I feel stupid!
