Pure / direct audio over HDMI - slantedview - 12-03-2012

I'm having trouble getting perfect, pure direct audio over HDMI to my pioneer receiver. I'd like to get audiophile (pure) quality audio and right now I'm getting minor distortion and background noise on some songs, along with an overall flat sound quality (compared to windows + foobar + asio4all). My aplay -l printout:

root ~ # aplay -l
**** List of PLAYBACK Hardware Devices ****
card 0: Generic [HD-Audio Generic], device 3: HDMI 0 [HDMI 0]
Subdevices: 0/1
Subdevice #0: subdevice #0

So I configured my audio settings to use hw:0,3. I set my receiver to DIRECT stream, and I get the noise/distortion. Any tips?
