Winamp is noticeably quieter than any other program or system sounds, you have to max out the volume slider just to make it close to equal. DSP plugins are nice, but they do preamp boosting, which frequently causes overload issues which result in crappy sound. Winamp needs POSTamp boosting.

Switching output plugin from DirectSound to Wave-out fixes quieter problem. Should sound equally loud as any other player. Just a side-note, nothing more... :)

Yes, using driver related sound boosters will cause issues to sound if you have good speakers or headphones. Even slight boosting and/or usage of software equalisator and i can hear noise and cracking with my stereo + headphone combination.
