Go to http://distrowatch.com and select your choice. I would say Mandriva based Mageia or SUSE.

Probably you do not need to switch distro; you can go to the Debian wiki and troubleshoot your audio problem on CrunchBang.

https://wiki.debian.org/Sound

Or post on the CrunchBang forums, they are friendly over there and you will probably get a good answer within a few hours.

When it comes to hardware support under Debian I have found this site to be useful to find the right drivers:

If you are only changing distro for supporting specific hardware, then as far as I know all distro are same, because they all contain same linux kernel. Although some distro include more or less drivers by default. Hence Linux Mint or Ubuntu is normally preferred as they contain proprietary drivers. Although if a driver is not present by default in any distro and if it is available for linux then it can be installed externally in any distro.
