sudo apt-get install pavucontrol
Then open it. Under the playback tab you select the device you want to 
play back through from a drop down selection of all the audio devices 
your system sees. I switch between my USB headset and my 6.1 sound systm 
all the time using that. I use the headset to not bother other's 
sleeping. Or, I can blow the cat out the window with 6.1. pavucontrol 
SHOULD be installed during the install process, but it's not. Go figure. Ric
