The mixer only has PCM, which corresponds to master volume, thus
nothing changed. Even if there were other channels in the mixer, it
wouldn't make sense for this situation because my audio is normal for
Codeine, Amarok, mplayer, Skype, Flash.|
For now I'll use Codeine and hope the problem disappears in the next release of KDE.
Thanks for you suggestions.

Try fiddling with the mixers. Does the hiss disappear if you turn down the volume? (NOTE: sometimes two or three mixer channels can be changed. Turning down "PCM" volume and turning up "Master" or vice versa might give the same volume but in different quality. There may be also some other settings; I believe kmix does show everything that's avalailable, if in doubt try something like alsamixer.) cheers -- vbi
