Indeed; I'd spent days googling around lists and pages, at last found:
about the 1750, which was wrong (for the 1500c) about the device hints -
for unbridged devices, says sound(4) - but the needed clue for loading
both snd_sbc and snd_ess.

snd_ess(4) has been updated then; at 5.4 it didn't mention snd_sbc.
Building a 5-STABLE world right now, I'm a bit curious as to which of
