your mac's audio card is locked to a sample rate higher than the source material you're listening to, maybe.
audio card/driver, that is. likely a setting in the cpanel or whatever.

No one is ruling that out peng.
yeah music is at 44.1hkz sample rate, so if your mac is set to anything higher than this (most commonly 48khz) and is unable to match the sample rate with the source material, it will force play the 44.1khz material at 48khz, which will cause it to sound faster.
