Re: esd eats 25% cpu?

I have the same problem - but I think its 27% - I could be wrong. 
Anyway, my soundcard is a clone sound blaster compatible clone 
thingy. It uses OPTi82C931 chipset, and I use the MAD16 and 
Microsoft Windows Sound System thingy in the kernel. It is Plug-N-

snapshot of both audiofile and esound
