Yep.  I've been through that on other systems.  So I had checked that
out previously (and again now for good measure).  No combination I've
tried does anything to make improve the sound quality.

And regardless of the mixer settings, using -Dplughw:0,0 works
wonderfully, while leaving it off and having the default PCM be
whatever system-config-soundcard and alsa have it at, the sound is
crackly.

I did just find that disabling dmix improves things considerably.  I
could have sworn I had tried this before, but I must not have had
something toggled right.

Thanks Anne.
