RH9, xmms, intel 845GL chipset, poor audio quality
Hi, I have been using xmms on a machine with onboard intel 845GL chipset which is used for the onboard integrated audio.
Now, sound works, and is detected and configured during install, but the quality is terrible. It sounds scratchy/distorted and just plain bad.
If I use the EQ in xmms and lower the preamp volume (alot) and increase the players master volume, then the sound quality improves to be usuable but is still bad. I have only tried MP3, but I dont believe it is related to the mp3 decoder or I would have seen many complaints about the bad audio quality.
