Question Low Volume in Debian Etch


I have the volume turned all the way up and it's still not very loud. In Ubuntu I didn't have this problem. Is there anyway to increase the max volume?

I checked volume control under video & sound and I have that all the way turned up.

I am noticing though, that when I turn it up in ALSA mixer than it gives me more background buzz than it does increase the volume. I don't remember having this problem with Ubuntu so is this something that I can fix in Etch? I've put a good amount of effort in playing with the ALSA mixer to make it go away ,but have had no success.

buzz as in 60hz hum ?

That could be cause by a lot of things other than teh PC. Cheap speakers, power cables run in parallel with the audio cable out from teh PC to the amplified speakers, etc..

Do you hear the hum when you use a pair of headphones ?

I use only headphones and they're pretty decent,(Seinheiser 515.) It becomes very noticeable when I turn the volume up more than half way in alsa. Even when it's half way I can hear it when there's no sound coming through. And I don't have this issue when I'm using them for my 360 so I don't think it's a hardware problem.
