Well, wouldn't you know, adding the volume icon did the trick. Not sure 
the logic behind it but at this point I don't care! I got my sound now 
and that is what is important. I had to tweak the settings a bit more so 
the signal wasn't so over-driven and now it's all good to go.

Thank you for the advice. Still have a ways to go with learnin' Linux.
