Guess this has something to do with the mp3 encoding. I post mixes in a
newsgroup and got comments that the bitrate was not high enough (friggin' 160
kbps!!!) as surround speakers gave weird noises. You could try setting your DSP
to "stereo" instead of "surround" or whatever it's called in your case.
Remember, regular stereo does _not_ carry surround information, only dedicated
formats (I dunno, AC3? AAC?) do that


(it is kinda offtopic tho)
