That's my guess too Phillip.  Right now, i'm just trying to discern the 
pattern.  I have a 24/88 4 channel album that plays fine in everything. It's 
this Lord of the Rings in 24/88 6-channel that is the pain.  

Now, loading these files into an editor like kwav and playing them there? No 
problem .

A thought i had was that mplayer and  xine all use ffmpeg and it might be a 
problem with that library. However, the file crashes alsaplayer, xmms and even 
flac123 too.  So much for that theory.

I'm pretty sure that it's not a hardware problem. though.

Thanks for all the input folks.
