Yes! Thanks a lot! :) I realize, it's a "workaround" rather than real
solution, but this made Audigy suitable for VOIP (I tried the highest value
of 0x0f0f).

I've got a feeling, it could be even set in release this way for all the
Audigy owners, until the final solution of DSP-related issues will take
place, because it doesn't seem to spoil anything (although I didn't made
much testing of all the available options yet). Or it could be switched on
by some special option: like at "configuration" stage before compilation,
or perhaps even as the additional module parameter.
