afaik, this has nothing to do with the player. if you have your sound system corrected installed the basic players should give quite similiar sound quality. this issue can be dependet of 1.E6 parameters, such as hardware, distro, kernel, blah, blah.
also, describe as "sound quality is not good" is a bit relative. is there sound at all? how? the sound is the same in any player? more input...
Distribution: Ubuntu 5.10 | Windows XP Professional
there is sound....just a slight farty sound @ da end of the pitch...i dont understand wots wrong...the sound drivers were properly installed during installation itself....the quality of sound isnt pure enough...the way it is in windows media player...wot cud b da reason?i

The rules also state -
Do not post if you do not have anything constructive to say in the post.
What kind of speaker setup do you have? ALSA is a relatively new project and it doesn't produce sound of the same quality as OSS or the Windows sound drivers although the difference is only really noticable if either you're listening hard or have good quality speakers/headphones. So if the sound just isn't as crisp as you're used to then it's something you're going to have to live with unless you fork out the $40 for full version OSS drivers (can get stereo free, for full surround it's not) but if the sounds seems generally stuffed then perhaps it's something you can fix. Which drivers is alsa using?
