Huh, I have to confess I don't understand the technical stuff very much.

Anyway, I provide some captured samples:
"bad" refers to no configuration value, 44, 48 and 96 refer to the value 
of frequency set / 1000.
By examining them in audacity, it seems that the sound is actually 
choppy (see the attached "screenshots").
