I have a vague memory from several months ago,
maybe only 20% clarity mental memory,
that pulse audio did have some benefit - like perhaps eliminating this
exact low pitch problem.

But, at this time I'm _very_ unsure on that memory.

I just mention it so others might note that perhaps PA did have some
benefit, or modification effect, in this aspect of my system.

Perhaps it _caused_ this problem, in some way, like when I removed it.

Impossible for me to recall at this time.
