I was using VoodooHDA on my old socket 1156 system / ALC888. Sound quality was acceptable, but with occasional ticks/pops. I just installed Lilu (1.3.1) and AppleALC (1.3.4) after setting layout-id = 1 in my DSDT. Audio is crystal clear with no pops/ticks.

Code:
                Device (HDEF)
                {
                Name (_ADR, 0x001B0000)
                Method (_DSM, 4, NotSerialized)
                {
                    Store (Package (0x08)
                    {
                        "codec-id",
                        Buffer ()
                        {
                            0x88, 0x08, 0xEC, 0x10
                        },
                        "layout-id",
                        Buffer ()
                        {
                            0x01, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00
                        },
                        "device-type",
                        Buffer ()
                        {
                            "Realtek ALC888"
                        },
                        "PinConfigurations",
                        Buffer () {}
                    }, Local0)
                    DTGP (Arg0, Arg1, Arg2, Arg3, RefOf (Local0))
                    Return (Local0)
                }
            }

Not a new codec, AppleALC has supported ALC888 since initial release

Thanks, Toleda. How do I change my user name to "Off Topic"
