I'm not too familiar with the intricacies of Pulse Audio but I had a 
problem on a wheezy machine relatively recently that was solved when I 
added the user to the "audio" group.  (PA seems to run either in system 
mode or user mode.  In the latter, only members of audio can use stuff.)

BTW, in your previous message I noticed you used sudo for lspci, lsmod 
and dmesg.  You can run those with just a plain user.  On the 
other hand, if your sound issue was really system vs. user, then maybe 
if you'd run speaker-test with sudo, you'd have heard something. :)
