so i'm listening to some music on rhythmbox and i'm not really happy w/ the sound. i tried using/customizing the equalizer and it's pretty much the same result, when i try to turn the sound on the "louder" range it starts distorting. this nvr happened before on xp, but it seems to be happening now. i think it's because i don't have my sound drivers installed and i'm not really sure how to use it. i'm using the nVidia CK804 (alsa mixer) it's kinda like the volume control that windows had, but doesn't quite sound the same. i'm wondering if that has to do w/ the incompatibility of my motherboard. so if anyone can help me improve my sound, that would be awesome. ty.
