https://bbs.archlinux.org – I have the same device on my desktop and audio levels are the same in Linux and winxp/win7. Using snd_hda_intel also in the kernel. lspci | grep -i Audio 00:1b.0 Audio device: Intel Corporation N10/ICH 7 Family High Definition Audio Controller (rev 01)I am using Pulse-Audio with alsa libs. My speaker system is a Logitech X51 5.1 sound or something.. it comes with a hardware volume control knob which I use 99% of the time to change volume levels. I would recommend grabbing the paprefs and pavucontrol to check/manage your sound levels. To be honest I don't even remember needing to use alsam (HowTos)
