ALSA poor sound quality
I have just got ALSA working with 2.6.4 in Gentoo2004. My onboard sound card is the nForce one which works using the snd_intel8x0 module.
it is all working acceptably, however, the quality if the music is when I'm playing mp3s, for example, is not as good as when I was using OSS. Obviously, this is due to some configurations somewhere.
When I put the volume up to say, 50% in the ALSA mixer and on my speakers, the sounds becomes very crackly and it is very unpleasant to listen too. Is there some configuration which I have done wrong?
If you need any other information to help me fix this, just tell me.
