Right now, I have DirectShow load and play MP3s for the music. But, if DirectShow lets you load MP3s, why not just use DirectShow for the sounds as well, it gives you WAY more file compatibility then DirectSound...

direct sound offers:
1) 3D capabilities
2) sound FX caps
3) allows playing many voices at once without performance degredation. (try playing 10 to 20 mp3s at once to represent sound effects in a game!
