I have problems with my sound card, an Asus Xonar DX on Ubuntu 12.04 LTS. To hear something, i need to set Ubuntu's volume at 100% and speakers volume at 75%.

Ubuntu sound
alsamixer

At this moment i can barely hear something with some quality. But then, at the moment when I increased volume, like a 10% more, it sounds distorted.

How can i fix this?

Try to re-plug the extra power connector. –  CL. Dec 2 '12 at 13:54
    
Takkat Thx for the editting. @CL. That's it! The plastic part had moved like 1/2 inch and did not allow that the connection would fit properly. Fixed!!! –  Xaver Dec 2 '12 at 23:05
