Pulse Audio quality problems

I have upgraded 3 different Fedora 7 machines to Fedora 8 (both 32-bit and 64-bit). In every case the sound quality of Fedora 8 is vastly inferior to Fedora 7.

While I appreciate the new capabilities of Pulse Audio, many files such as Flash videos are close to impossible to listen to due to the poor sound quality.

Hardware on most machines appears to be:
00:10.1 Audio device: nVidia Corporation MCP51 High Definition Audio (rev a2)

I have tried removing alsa-plugins-pulseaudio and it has made no improvement. Actually if anything it is worse.

Wondering if anyone else has had big sound quality problems that they have worked out how to fix?

Yep, got rid of pulse and set the whole system to use OSS.

Yep, rebuilt custom pulse, gst-pulse, alsa and gstreamer rpms from svn. I am NOT an official Fedora Project guy, but I will let you peek at my spec files here: http://thenerdshow.com/rpm/

Do not download the binaries. I won't be responsible for what's in them.

no problems with pulse audio here with flash videos, sorry you seem to be having so much trouble. Have you made sure to lower the PCM volume to <85% ? I find that with Pulse, I need to lower the pcm volume quite a bit to get sound that doesn't sound all garbled. If anything just get rid of Pulse completely and go back to alsa or oss.

Wow - you're spot on. Tweaking the PCM volume has made a world of difference.

Thanks heaps.
