You have two audio devices
00:1b.0 Audio device: Intel Corporation 82801G (ICH7 Family) High Definition Audio Controller (rev 01)

and
04:00.1 Audio device: ATI Technologies Inc RV630/M76 audio device [Radeon HD 2600 Series]

This ATI device is a bit confusing - I have not heard of sound cards from ATI and Radeon HD 2600 Series is a graphics card...
So is that a sound card or an error and which card is delivering the sound
You may have to select sound source - Control Center > Sound
There are a few drop down menus there....

The ATI 2600 has a integrated 5.1 HD audio controller. You can run audio over an HDMI cable. The sound is ok in the Control Center but i still have 2 speakers working.
