It might be that your volume settings are outputting too high. Try opening up your volume controls, turn down the output volume a bit (menu system->preferences->sound), and then use your hardware knobs to turn it to the volume you want. A lot of the time distortion comes from the input to your amplifier being to high, which causes "clipping."
