Distorted sound with 12.04

Asked by DH on 2012-05-01

Trying to get sound working without problems on 12.04. Clean install on a new partition using the 12.04 iso.

Current hardware:
ASUS M3A87-EM mainboard with onboard sound
ASUS EN9400GT video card with HDMI output to
Marantz SR6006 AV receiver (7.1 surround sound) with HDMI output to
Sony Bravia TV

Current status:
Able to hear surround sound through speakers but all speakers are outputting distorted audio. Sounds like reverb mixed with delays, usually in the non-center channels, but happens in center as well. Occasionally it sounds like a wah-wah pedal has been activated.

Distortion most often occurs when pulse-audio hits 100% (watching pavucontrol) but is present even when not at max levels.

I've tried:

Changing the output from digital to analog. Distortion occurs in both. Even affects test audio clips in the Sound preferences.

Changing alsamixer levels to minimize gain has no effect (that I can detect).

Adding a forum fix (https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?pid=920549) didn't seem to help.

Removing the Marantz receiver from the equation (HDMI direct to Bravia) doesn't change anything as the sound on the TV speakers has the same distortion.

Sound is distorted even coming off the analog audio out (speaker jack) on the front-panel of the computer piped to a desktop speaker system (R/L + sub).

Disabling Pulseaudio in VLC and outputting via ALSA digital improves the quality of sound _substantially_, but it still cuts in/out and pops/crackles on occasion.

It appears to be at least partially a Pulseaudio issue and I have no idea how to debug/fix this.

It may be there is an ALSA issue as well.

I'll be happy to take suggestions.

Step 6: System sounds set to 100%

Step 7: alsamixer levels all set to high range, no mute occuring.

Step 8: I can hear sound over speakers, but it is distorted.

Step 9: Not dual booting.

Step 10:

Group membership should be: pulse pulse-access pulse-rt audio video

Available groups: <user> adm cdrom sudo audio dip video plugdev lpadmin pulse pulse-access sambashare
<user>: <user> adm cdrom sudo audio dip video plugdev lpadmin pulse pulse-access sambashare
root: root

Should I change anything here?

Seriously... no one has any clue? I was under the impression that this was the last/best hope of getting this issue addressed?

still no solution? I also having this problem. When I plug the jack and the sound will distort.

Please refer the screenshot. http://i.imgur.com/Nw8G8l.jpg
Once I increase the volume, the sound will be so loud.

I linked this to a bug that sounds similar... hopefully someone will follow-up?

Can you help with this problem?
