USB audio only outputs white noise

http://unix.stackexchange.com – I am running OpenBSD/i386 5.1 on a 5 year old laptop. The speakers and headphone port work, but the headphone port is a little loose so I am trying to install an external USB sound card (Fiio E17 USB DAC). No problems using it on Windows. The device is detected and I created a node for it in /dev with sh /dev/MAKEDEV audio1, then linked the rest of the devices to point to the new sound card. So far so good, I am able to run cat /dev/urandom > /dev/audio and I hear white noise. However, I am not able to run any other audio through it. My tail /var/log/messages after plugging the device in: (HowTos)
