Default Distorted Audio When Capturing From a Capture Card

Hey guys.

For some reason, when I record video on my capture card, the audio is always distorted. Sounds like it's slightly muffled, and it 'crackles.' (don't know the proper term for that one.)

Here's a sample vid; listen to the audio to see what I mean.

YouTube - Halo Reach | Team Slayer on Cliffhanger in Team Slayer

My setup is in my sig (HTPC). The audio is drawn in from the Line In on the motherboard's back panel.
Case: CoolerMaster HAF 932
CPU : Intel i7-5820K 6-core @ 3.3GHz
RAM : 32GB DDR4 2400MHz (G.SKILL Ripjaws)
HDD : Main: 240GB SSD SATA2 (Intel) Storage: 3TB SATA2 (WD Green) Backup: 500GB External USB (Hitatchi)
GFX : Gigabyte GTX 970 4GB
PSU : 750W Corsair Modular PSU
MoBo: Asus X99-A
View : Acer H213H 21.5" @ 1920 x 1080 + random 4:3 monitor
