In short, completely ignore my previous email. My troubles (dial-up
modem style noise)
were caused by audioctl settings incompatible with WAV files I tried
to send directly
to /dev/sound0 instead of using audioplay(1). One livecd succeeded because
it started pulseaudio which in turn changed  play.* audioctl settings
to proper values.

5.1/azalia(4) works perfectly.
6.0/azalia(4) works perfectly.
6.0/hdaudio(4) produces high-pitch _monotonous_ squeaks and music.
