The root problem here is that Boxes will default to use a ac97 sound controller. There haven’t been new drivers released for this card since 2004, and never for been 64-bit drivers for Windows. This sound controller is selected by Boxes, and the problem is tracked as GNOME bug #761031. You can work-around the issue by modifying your box configuration to use a ich6 sound controller (Intel HD Audio) instead. Alternatively, you can use a USB sound card and pass that directly to the virtual machine. This can result in less stuttery and better audio performance inside the virtual machine.
