I'm trying to run xmms on a remote machine with local display and use 
esound back to the local machine for audio.  The same happens with 
esdplay so the problem is with esd not xmms but it's xmms I want

I have esd running on a my local machine:
$ esd -public -tcp -port 16001

Sound comes from the speakers but the quality is unusable.  It pops and 

Is anyone using esd?  How?

NAS works with good quality, (such that I can't tell it's remote), but 
not with (csw) xmms.  The network is not saturated.

Or if someone can think of a better way of doing remote sound with any 
music player, please say.
