hi fi music player

How come different softwares play the same mp3, but sound kinda different? The same thing happen when I play the same .wav file.

I heard there are some softwares that can play mp3 music in a very high quality. Does anyone know such softwares and know how they work?

The sound quality is pretty much fixed by the recording method.
You'll get better recording quality with ogg/vorbis or flac than mp3, though I need an oscilloscope to spot the difference.

Different apps will do different post-processing ...
You will also get different results with different speakers.
The larger applications - amarok, rhythmbox - have mixer setting to change how the sound is reproduced.
