Please note that I am not talking about encoding here, just the audio output of the system.

I'm running Arch Linux and all is working well. I use ALSA for audio but was wondering if there were any known settings that can help in terms of audio playback quality?

I'm well aware of the fact that I need a dedicated sound card to get the best results but I'm looking for a short term solution to make sure that the on-board sound card is performing at its best. I'm pretty new to audio stuff on Linux so I would be grateful for any advice.

When I have enough cash to spare I'll be getting an Asus Xonar DGX 5.1 PCI-E sound card (unless someone can recommend a better one).
