I'm a little bit confused.  I have some 24-bit files that i downloaded. These 
files are reported by 'file' as FLAC audio bitstream data, 24 bit, 6 channels, 
48 kHz, 18273600 samples

I was able to play one of them at one time, a few days ago and now i am not. I 
hate it when people say "i don't know what changed" but i don't. All i get is 
hiss in the left channel from my stereo. I can play other 24-bit file fine, 
even 96khz tracks. 

I've tried mplayer, xine, and phonon (using xine)

Any ideas? 

I am using my on-board intel hd audio.   My asound.conf is as follows:

cat /etc/asound.conf                       
pcm.dmixer {                                                                      
        type dmix                                                                 
        ipc_key 1024                                                              
        ipc_key_add_uid false

        slave {

                rate 96000
