Try the current BenH tree. One problem in the dmasound_awacs driver is
that even with hardware that doesn't know how to reendianize samples in
hardware (like iBook's DACA and iBook2's Texas/Tumbler), it'll still allow
a userspace program to select a little-endian sample format. That's one
thing I've corrected with a patch I sent to Ben, so that should correct
your problem there.

Are you listening throughh headphones plugged into its audio out, or
through its internal speakers? Don't be surprised if the built-in speakers
sound a little hissy.
