I am using Rhythmbox 2.96. Unfortunately, music sounds quite bad (especially bass parts). If I let totem play exactly the same files, sound is perfect. Same with gst-launch playbin uri=file. It doesn't matter if the file is mp3 or flac.

How to find out what is wrong?

Do you have replaygain or another rhythmbox plugin active that could mess with your audio output? –  lizifox Mar 2 '13 at 11:36
nope. I deactivated all plugins for testing, with no luck. –  32bitfloat Mar 2 '13 at 16:01
