Hmm, this is starting to sound a bit like a xine bug.  A few more
questions/directions to try:

1) What backend are you using for aqualung?
2) Is playback still noisy playing files with xine-ui in a terminal?
3) What version of xine and phonon are you running?

Here's an old thread on ubuntuforums about your issue, though they don't
reach any conclusions [1].  Can you try playing around with the xine-
config file?

In general, the xine backend playing flac seems to be a bit flaky:

Missing playback at the end of flac files -- http://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=172394
Can't play 24/96 flac files at all -- https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=182640
Can't fast-forward flac files -- https://bugs.edge.launchpad.net/xine-lib/+bug/162470

There is an upstream bug on the xine tracker about noisy playback [2],
but the direction they started going was into ffmpeg.  The best
direction from here is to confirm that the bug occurs when playing with
xine-ui, and then following up on that report [2].
