> Hi all,
I have the same soundcard, works like a charm since 2007.
Telling us what's your distro/kernel would be of some help.
.asoundrc (if any)?
Did you put your onboard soundcard kernel module in the kernel blacklist ?

By looking at the archives this seems like it could be the right list
since I see a lot of people with a lot of domain experience here.
I recently acquired a second hand PCI sound card from the subject and
am having some sound quality issues which seem difficult to
understand. It is a Envy24/ICE1712 (snd_ice1712) based cards and comes
with a 5.25" IO module, although that is probably not relevant.
Issue is that when playing something through it, there is intermittent
static like distortion in high frequencies. It is not regular, it's
character changes but I am unable to correlate it to any externals.
=A0* It happens regardless of whether I am sending audio directly via
ALSA (directly to hw:0 or not), or with jackd running.
=A0* It happens on PCM out 0&1 and 2&3 (haven't tried 4&5 y=
directly to HW0&1 etc.
=A0* It is not triggered by DAC output level (Analog Volumes page)
=A0* Sound coming from line-in, mixed via Digital Mixer is not affected,
while simultaneous PCM out mix-in is.
=A0* When playing silence issue does not show.
=A0* Distortion volume seems to perfectly track sound volume. Whether I
play with DAC output levels or actual PCM source level.
As far as I understand this chip set, since Line-in through digital
mixer is not affected, this rules faults in:
=A0* digital mixer
=A0* analog output stage
What is left? Something on the driver side? Unreported under/over
runs? Something else? Interrupt line is not shared with anything else
and nothing unusual gets reported in the kernel logs, or by jackd.
Would it help if I recorded the distortion and shared it?
