Hi Dave,

I have this :
pcm0: <Avance Logic ALC650 AC97 Codec>

and in my kernel :
# sound device
device          sound
device          snd_via8233

Regarding quality, I had a lot of problems (meaning sound distorsion), 
but it disappeared all a sudden one day, and I don't know why. So now, 
it works really well.
