Hi David

Just a quick follow up on this. I have found the volume on the output
jacks to be quite soft. 100% (master, front, clfe, surround) volume in
alsamixer gives the same volume as 60% percent using a soundblaster
card (driver CA0106). Is it a known issue with realtek ALC888 hardware
that the output volume is generally lower? Or perhaps there is some
"gain" setting I can use for the pin config?
