To reiterate -- the type of soundcard used by the host has no relevance
to what qemu emulates for the guest.

You should pick an emulated device which is a) part of the list of
device which qemu emulates and b) where you have a suitable driver for
the guest OS.

Xen uses what qemu implements here. You are using the older
qemu-traditional device model which predates the addition of hda support
to qemu.

newer versions of Xen (4.3 onwards, experimental in 4.2) support using
newer upstream versions of qemu, however 4.1 does not so unless you want
to upgrade you Xen this isn't an option for you.

I wouldn't expect it would.
