you get static because aplay doesn't handle anything except regular PCM
data. compressed file formats like FLAC are recognized as "raw data" and it
just guesses a sample rate and data format, which naturally are all wrong.
find a PCM file (something.wav) and try that.

Clemens, I appreciate all your interest and support.

As I stated originally, the man at the local stereo shop duplicated my envi=

is working. What differences should I be looking at?
