I moved the sound card and then the nic left (I didn't move it) to irq 9,
sharing with my scsi card (aic7xxx). The sound card stayed on irq 5.

But this didn't solve my distortion. I now believe it may be because I
have a voltage drop between my box/chassis and the cable ground. Don't
know where to go there, I may run a common from the chassis to the wrap
on the cable. Open for suggestions <please> ...
