why is this.
although the sound breaks often it has more than double fold of the sound in audiocious.
I just "solved" an audio volume level issue I was having. Whether this is relevant or not to your issue I can't say, but it's worth a look as it evolves audacious. My experience with vlc/audacious is that vlc has a noticeably lower volume level than audacious, but still plenty enough to adjust to whatever level I want.
My particular issue was with audacious while playing pysol (a solitaire card games program) which has sound effects enabled, and listening to music with audacious at the same time. It used to be that the sound volume levels from both apps were fairly balanced, but at some point, the sound from game was very much louder than the music level coming audacious. It was very annoying, especially since I always listen to audio from the computer using headphones.
I finally had enough of that and decided to investigate. In the preferences for audacious, one of the options is "Replay Gain". At some point in the past, I had enabled that (and quickly forgot about it). When I disabled Replay Gain, the volume levels when playing music in audacious went up, back to being balanced with the sound effects coming from pysol.
You might want to check if you have Replay Gain enabled in audacious or not.
