The sound is just perfect on Windows but I hate the whole Windows overhead and want to get back to Linux
Phoronix or maybe the ALSA mailing lists. As much as I hate to say it, I think it is just going to be easier to purchase an nVidia GPU. That'll also give you VDPAU support as an added bonus.
If you are curious, here's an alsa-devel thread regarding LPCM on fglrx: http://mailman.alsa-project.org/pipermai...42544.html
It is the predecessor to the Phoronix thread I linked in the first post. Essentially, ATI claims that they have released the needed information but no one has updated ALSA to compensate.
Looks like something with ALSA. Does this file play without issue via something like mplayer?

It is worth a shot. ATI has been traditionally pretty shoddy regarding Linux support.
