I assume that the CD size is not an issue, because of the small size of 
those packages. There was an opinion out there, that pulseaudio creates 
problems and conflicts with some alsa components. Despite this opinion, 
in every Lubuntu installation I made, I had to install pulseaudio and 
pavucontrol in order to manage my USB-headset.
