So I tried 

miniG4:~$ aplay --device=plughw:1,0 flac/ripit/B/Beatles/Let_It_Be..._Naked/10_Across_The_Universe.flac 
Playing raw data 'flac/ripit/B/Beatles/Let_It_Be..._Naked/10_Across_The_Universe.flac' : Unsigned 8 bit, Rate 8000 Hz, Mono
^CAborted by signal Interrupt...

and got static. Which is a huge improvement! At least I'm getting sound, now.

Clemens, I appreciate all your interest and support.

As I stated originally, the man at the local stereo shop duplicated my environment, albeit on slightly different hardware (macbook G4 vs mini G4). His is working. What differences should I be looking at?
