Thanks for the feedback! There's a couple of funky little issues I'm still
working on, and I should be able to put up an update within a day or so
(interstate visitors in town at the moment). Hopefully I might be able to
resolve the static problem with that.

If you're feeling adventurous, you could try changing  
    buffer_settings.maxlength = 9 * buffer_settings.minreq;
    buffer_settings.maxlength = 12 * buffer_settings.minreq;
in AudioOutputPulseAudio::ConnectPlaybackStream(), maybe even 16 *. I'd
be curious to see how/if that affects your static issue.

Not sure if I mentioned it previously, but this is my first encounter with
PulseAudio, so I'm learning on the fly here.

Cheers, Cal
