Thanks Mike but there was an even easier solution. I talked to the
guys on IRC and they told me I just should use plug:default instead of
default (thanks goes especially to wishie in #alsa!), just because
plug: automatically sets the correct rate and format.

Now I use ALSA:plug:default|plug:surround51 as the audio devices in my
frontends settings and everything's much better than before. No
problems anymore with externally added files.
