Make sure the tone control switch is muted.  It's not enough to set bass
and treble to 0, you have to disable the switch.

I am working on improving the emu10k1 driver.  But, the Audiophile is
certainly a better card.  You get what you pay for, and the SBLive value
is pretty amazing for a $20 soundcard but it's still a $20 soundcard.
