KMix seems to default to that, but seems to have no control over audio when it does.  If I select "HDA Intel", all is well.

Pulse audio is a current generation sound server for linux. It sits on top of ALSA and has certain features one might like. Do you need it? No, you don't NEED it. it is quite nice when it works though.
