That's possibly "The Wow Thing" - www.wowthing.com - which is actually very
good at adding bass and body to mp3 playback in winamp. The winamp plugin is
free. They also have a hardware gizmo to do the same to anything for a
I'm pretty sure there is no linux port of that plugin, but I guess the
hardware version will work on anything.
I also don't know how the thing works - whether it really does guess at the
lost bits using some sort of wonderful amazing technophonic guessing
algorithm or is simply (simply?!) a software subharmonic synthesiser plus
some stereo "spatializing" I can't say...

Ars Technica mention some plugin for WinAmp that replaces (by
guessing, I suppose) various harmonics that are lost in the MP3
compression phase. Don't suppose anyone knows if there is a linux version
of these plugins ?
