Treat yourself to an emu10k1 based card (Creative SB Live! series and SB
PCI 1024) which does the multiplexing in the card. Lots (32?) of
programs can open /dev/dsp and you get two outputs, one mirroring the
other, each with independent volume control. I use one for speakers, the
other for headphones. If you use the ALSA driver, and you're willing to
get your hands dirty in a config file, you can set it up such that
/dev/dsp0 goes to one output while /dev/dsp1 goes to the other, with no
mixing between the two.
