SB Live! 5.1 distortion trouble

This really isn't too big a deal, just a minorly annoying :p

I finished building a LFS 3.1 system yesterday and started working on 
getting all my hardware working. The problem occurs while playing mp3s 
in XMMS 1.2.5(I haven't tried any other software or file formats). When 
the mixer volumes for 'Vol' and 'Pcm' are set too close to 100% I get 
distortion in the music, no matter how low the speakers are set. It was 
happening with the emu10k1 module that comes with the 2.4.16 kernel so i 
  downloaded and compiled the module from 
and it's still happening.

I've the the mixer settings at 80% for both Vol and Pcm and it seems ok 
right now.

Any ideas?
