For what it's worth, one suggestion I'd make for the examples is to use
"plughw:0,0" as the default audio sink device, rather than "hw:0,0"
(assuming you're using ALSA).  It seems that some cheap soundcards (like
the on-board one in my Athlon machine) don't support the output rates
the examples generate; changing to plughw allows ALSA to resample on the
fly and works around that problem.

Using plughw would improve compatibility and I suspect reduce problem
