Well, you seem to have sound output because otherwise there would not be
scratching. I don’t know much about sound on Wine, but I do have
personal experience of similar issues with scratching on my Logitech USB

- Changing settings with alsamixer may help.
- Using a different loudspeaker / headphones may work.
- Using PulseAudio may work.

Maybe it helps; maybe not.
