2.80 SRS/Echo ???

Ok so I downloaded Windows Media Player 7, and as always it took me a good hour to figure out how to disable their dumb a*s "srs" effects which seem to be impossible to turn off.

I also decided to upgrade my Winamp to 2.80 and it seems to have the same function. Geez, is this some SRS craze ? Can someone please tell me how to disable the weird echo where the singer is heard far in the back.

And yes, I'm 100% sure this has nothing to do with some 3rd party tool. I have a simple motherboard soundcard which doesn't have any SRS features, nor have I downloaded any SRS plugin.

I just want these effects to disappear, tell me how.

SRS on Winamp? Hmm. Weird. Well have you checked in the Audio properties for anything pertaining to SRS? For some reason everything audio happens to be messed up having SRS enabled. From scratchy background noises to echos?
Go To your audio properties in Start Menu > Program Files > Accessories > Entertainment > Volume control. Or its in the task bar (bottom right corner, its the speaker icon). Check if theres any SRS properties on there. Mute anything thats SRS. If theres nothing that says SRS, go to Options > Properties and check anything that has anything to do with SRS. Click Ok. Your Master Out control panel will update with the extra settings. Then mute the stuff that has SRS (if there are any that you found). That should get rid of your echos. And disable SRS for good.

You know what ? This crappy little motherboard-integrated soundcard turns out to have "stereo-wide". I did as you instructed, went to the audio properties, and went on through the list. stereo-wide option wasn't checked, so naturally it didn't show up there by default.

I've muted the sucker and never to hear that horror again.
