"Dirty" sound after Kernel update. [SOLVED]

First of all my sound have always been "dirty" on Linux, like if the speakers/headphones where broken. However, earlier today I configured my sound for the first time on Arch and had a terrific sound! Perfect and clear. However, after I updated, my sound configuration was messed up and now, after re-configuring it, it has this "broken" sound again. Anything I can do about it?

What version of the kernel package are you using? There was sound issue with some versions: http://www.archlinux.org/news.php#219

To me it sounds like your PCM level is too high. If you set it to a high level, say, above 70, you'll get a grainy kind of sound. Try setting it to 69 or similar, and then stick to setting master volume. Works for me.

So I won't have to re-configure the sound again if I get kernel -8? Like 5 minutes after I got kernel -7 I saw there was a new update but with my recent problem with kernel -7 kept me from updating. My sound works almost perfectly it's just that there's this tiny buzzing sound in the background all the time.

Ok. It still works (with kernel -8 ) but the sound still sucks (it might even be worse but maybie I'm just imagine it :? ). What's the difference between the sound in -6 and -8?
