SRS Windows Media Player equivalent...

I've been using linux for quite some time. I absolutely love it in every respect, except for one.

I use my Koss TD-61 headphones for listening to music and such...they are inexpensive but they are great headphones.

In Windows, with Media Player (say versions 7, 8 or 9) there is this option of "SRS". Now, quite frankly I am not a fan of Windows but I will tell you that this SRS enhancement in Media Player makes the bass so deep and evident in my headphones that I am still amazed today if I listen in Windows.

This is not an issue of mere "equalizer settings" in XMMS or any other mixer software. The SRS stuff in WMP is some kind of enhancement algorithm that makes the bass especially sound oh so nice...almost as if I had a studio-type headset on.

I have bought and tried the StreamFX plugin for XMMS. It just isn't working to my satisfaction. Any dynamic bass enrichment in that software leads to distortion in my headphones.

This is now the ONLY reason I would boot windows instead of linux. I love listening to MP3s in windows because the SRS enhancement makes the experience unbelievable (it really is good).

Is there anything comparable in linux? I just haven't had the same depth perception with the music in linux as I had with SRS in WMP.
