I just purchase one of those generic 5.1 USB sounds for like $4 off ebay. The previous one I had worked fine and had very few issues but i bent the body and detached the soldered leads from the circuit board (i might repair it). anyways the replacement I bought is incredibly loud and has a very noticeable hiss. I literally have the OS (Win7) volume set at 1 and its incredibly loud and even WORSE when i turn on loudness correction. before i chalk this up to me being an intolerable cheap ass, is there anything I can do to remedy this problem?
