Sound on MacBookPro9,2

I've followed the special instructions on how to get Arch running on my MacBook Pro 9,2 (Mid 2012) and they have proven to be very useful. But on my model, the audio doesn't sound right: Compared to OS X it sounds a little bit like heard through an old telephone. Does anyone else have / had the problem, or better, has a fix for it? If it's not only me, maybe the fix or notice could then be added to the page.

Does this happen both over speakers and the headphone jack? Could you give some more details? Alsa? PulseAudio?

If I remember correctly I believe it also has something to do with various mixer controls and the way they relate to one another. Perhaps try raising more than one level at a time? Sorry I can't help more, I'm the original writer of this article but since writing this I decided to recycle the disk space for a windows install. (I have made many poor decisions in my life.)

Thanks for the great article. I tried a lot of different mixer-settings already, but if I find time, I might try around some more...

I did start a thread around this problem on the Arch-forums, including technical details. It's right here.

I would like to rename this page to MacBookPro9,x because the 9,1 and 9,2 are not much different from eachother. This also agrees with the format of MacBookPro10,x and MacBookPro11,x which are well-written.
