Garbled noise from speakers using Audigy

This is a strange one.
System's been up and running fine for the last few days, and when I booted this morning (I have to shut down the system overnight due to PC location) I got a garbled mess of a noise coming from my speakers. This happens at the desktop, and usually if there's nothing happening - ie, if I play an mp3 the noise goes away. Also tried rebooting, but with the same results.
I did a search and checked this thread. I followed motub's advice for checking the 'artsd' service, and it's enabled. I checked to see if this service is enabled at boot, it is.
I'm using an Audigy card under Mandy 10.0
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance.

I've muted the IEC958 channel.
This seems to have sorted this out for the time being - if it happens again I'll post back.
Thanks for the advice.
