So how good is PulseAudio's resampler? Whatever one is in use now, shits
all over my music. Listening on a decent pair of speakers is not even
worth it, it just reveals how much high frequencies are completely
mangled into a noisy mess. Since a lot of hardware these days seems to
only support 48khz, software resampling has to be done to play (ripped)
CDs, and wherever the existing one is, it sucks. (dmix? In the kernel?)

The crossfade plugin for xmms can do resampling, the "best sinc
interpolator" sounds real nice but eats 30% cpu time on a 2ghz Athlon 64
