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?
