Are you sure that esd does not compress the data?

By the way, esd can be used with any audio application. It can emulate a 
real soundcard. Example follows.


On the server (where your real sound card is located):

esd -promiscuous -tcp -pubic -port 1500  


On the client:

esddsp -v -s 192.168.0.13:1500 mpg123 something.mp3


The mpg123 program does not need to have ESD support. The esddsp program 
creates a fake pcm device before starting mpg123.

Best,
