That shouldn't be the case. Did you alter the equalizers in XMMS? Any plug-in
running in XMMS which enhances sound quality?
Look under Preferences in XMMS 1.x:
Audio IO Plugins
Anything special among the list?

When changing songs? I noticed that too, but it's mainly because AmaroK does
plenty of work when changing songs (OSD, append recommendation(s), playlist
redrawn...). I suspect you are referring to something else though.

I suspect not... not for Linux as far as I can gather.

Some people reported that AmaroK could not (yet) play MP3's or that sound did
not play altogether. Among many users, no-one complained about the quality
and I am not sure it is a measurable or detectable thing either.
