After several attempts in a strictly controlled environment I've been
unable to reproduce real differences between recording using the
soundcard (Creative SoundBlaster) of a PC[1], and the AJBR[2]. The
most likely culprit for the initial 'low quality' recordings is a bad
ear piece.

Sorry for the false alarm.
