XMMS does not pass sound through itself when playing CDs. To quote
from the 

" Cd Audio Player
Plays audio cd's on Linux, FreeBSD and Solaris. This plugin does not pass
the sound through XMMS, so no visualization can be made nor will the
equalizer settings have any effect."

I believe you need the cable to your sound card set up correctly.

As for ESD, that is what I use. What is the problem you face
precisely? I use with GNOME, and my computer is my jukebox (over 300
ripped CDs, believe me it works ;-)
