Hi, it's been a while but I was out of town for a few days so i couldn't test it.
Well, you are probably right, direct use of hw:1,7 does not produce any distortion.
Could you please now propose a solution? Without the .asoundrc file there is no sound.
ps: i am not that fluent in English to be able to explain you the kind of distortion.

Can you try to do
mv ~/.asoundrc ~/.asoundrc.copy
speaker-test -c2 -D hw:1,7 -twav
no need to fiddle with PA config.
Does this also produce distorted sound? BTW, what kind of distortion do you get?
