The sound is 95% correct, but has a strange grating
'buzz' and nasty pops and clicks whenever mixer
settings are changed.
Thought it was bad MP3 encoding at first, but then
listened to WAVs ripped (via cdparanoia) straight from
the CD, and those sounded identical to the MP3 (bad).
Then thought maybe it was my stereo, so plugged
headphones straight into the audio-out jack. Still bad.
Then thought maybe it's clipping from the mixer, so I
turned down all levels. Still bad.
At this point, I think that the driver that's sending
data to the sound-out jack is bad. Unless I just have
bad hardware (?).
Don't have Windows loaded. Is there some way I can
figure if it's my hardware or if the driver has a bug?
