Hmm, or possibly, ecasound's -z:db subsystem causes trouble.
Anyway, I tested the following and it works ok with /dev/dsp, still works
with ALSA, althought causes an xrun warning:
ecasound -i foo.mp3 -f:16,1,8000 -o test.wav -x
~$ file test.wav
test.wav: RIFF (little-endian) data, WAVE audio, Microsoft PCM, 16 bit, mono 8000 Hz
ecasound -sr:8000 -f:16,1,8000 -i test.wav -o /dev/dsp
ecasound_cvs -sr:8000 -f:16,1,8000 -i test.wav -o alsa
... the last one causes an "(audioio-alsa3) unknown device state!" error
for some reason. But the playback does still work, even with -z:db
