Ouch :-)

I've been avoiding the sound stuff like a plague since the Apple stuff
is a total mess :-)

If aoa works generally better on this machine then the distro should use
it by default. I was somewhat hoping somebody would take over those
sound drivers once for all but they seem to systematically scare off all
the volunteers we can find :-)

Sadly, I don't have the time nowadays to do much work on them myself.
