How does plain ALSA do with USB audio? I installed Pulse a
while ago because of problems getting USB audio to work, and
though it breaks every five minutes and I can't figure out how
to fix it, it _does_ play through USB speakers. If ALSA
supports that well enough, I'll happily move back--I don't
have any need for networked audio servers, or twelve different
kinds of volume controls, it's just my desktop.
