Sound Is Garbled

I just installed Debian Wheezy on my Dell PC at work and everything works great but I noticed that the sound works and is functional but sounds very garbled and has a digital weird sound to it. Is there a way I can fix is? I did make sure I have 'alsa-utils' installed...

cmennens@tuna:~$ sudo apt-cache policy alsa-utils
  Installed: 1.0.23-5+b1
  Candidate: 1.0.23-5+b1
  Version table:
 *** 1.0.23-5+b1 0
        500 wheezy/main amd64 Packages
        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status

This might be because you're listening to a multi-channel audio stream instead of proper stereo... And with only 2 speakers, you won't hear the rest
