[FBSD5] es1373 - Creative PCI : recognized, but no audio output at all

This is not my first problem about soundcards under BSD.
I was using a SB16 Vibra ISA , and I found a more recent PCI es1373 (Ensoniq , SB128). I hoped real PCI PnP would help me. 

This time, listening to MP3/sound videos doesnt slow dramatically down my computer, but I just don't get any output at all. (nor CD audio)

I followed the handbook (device pcm) in kernel.

> cat /dev/sndstat
FreeBSD Audio Driver (newpcm)
Installed devices:
pcm0: <AudioPCI ES1373-B> at io 0xdc00 irq 11 (1p/1r/0v channels duplex default)

In dmesg :
pcm0: <AudioPCI ES1373-B> port 0xdc00-0xdc3f irq 11 at device 14.0 on pci0

Anyone has a clue ? 
The soundcard worked well 2 years ago, no reason it would be dead.
I tested inverting the CD Audio cable, unsuccessfully.

That is (probably) my latest big problem with FreeBSD (I run 5-RELEASE)
