When I try to play some mp3 with kde_players/juk/amarok I get only an awful noise. I believe it's related to mp3 endianess. I haven't the same problem with wave files. I haven't tried other formats like ogg.
I haven't problems using mplayer or xmms, which use alsa directly.
Steps to Reproduce:
I can't hear any music.
Play sounds, not noise!
My kdemultimedia version is 3.3.1.
Aditional note: mplayer using arts as audio output plays good mp3s.
A few candidates:
maybe you can add some information there (as the output of 'artsd -l0'),
there are probably more people able to debug this issue there.

Can someone test this?
There was a similar fix for alsa5 around, do not expect too much though...
I'm trying it. Soon I will able to tell you if it's all right.
I must say that the old alsa-bigendian patch didn't work on my PC.
Well, I used this patch, but I can't listen correctly to mp3 files. I haven't tried with ogg because I haven't one.
I can listen to wav files and uncompressed one, but I hear a bad noise with mp3s. Thanks a lot.
Is this bug still an issue?
