I fixed the issue, it's not with pulseaudio, it was with the bloody
receiver. Turns out the receiver was using a different sound field mode
when using the haswell hdmi output. It was using a sound field mode Sony
calls "sports" which was echoing front speaker content to rear speakers.
Setting it to a different surround sound field has fixed the issue. I
apologize if this wasted anyone's time. Thanks for all the help!
