Crossfading DirectSound Output 1.37 / Winamp 2.80

Noticed a potnetial bug/issue in 2.80. I just did a fresh install on my Dell Latitude C600 - Win2k SP2 etc. Noticed that it defaults to this Crossfading as the output method.

I get inconsistent sound quality when playing MP3s. It seems to at random apparently use the equalizer (when it sounds great) and then will apparently fail to use the equalizer the next time (even though it is turned on and it looks like its working - but its easy to hear the difference in sound quality). If I click on the slide bar (that you use to move to a different point in the song), the quality will actually toggle back and forth between the equalized and unequalized quality.

When I swithed the output to the Winamp WaveOut Plugin, the problem disappears completely. Not sure if this is an issue with my specific sound hardware or a more general issue. The computer has an ESS Maestro chipset.

Not causing me great pain but thought it was interesting enough to ask about.
