This usually indicates that your soundcard does not support arbitrary sampling
rates like 16khz.  Those cards usually choose the nearest available
value, which is either 11khz or 22khz, and results in a completely wrong playback speed.

I have no idea why ALSA works though, maybe it does internal resampling to
correct those problems.
