Sound:
ensure pulseaudio is removed and alsa-tools/alsa-utils are installed.
apt-get remove pulseadio
apt-get install alsa-tools alsa-utils

I have had issues with various programs trying to play 7.1 to 4.0 audio over my headphones. This usually presents itself with hearing sound effects but not conversation or vise versa.

edit /usr/share/alsa/alsa.conf

to comment out a line add # in front.
DIRRECTIVE

"The Thunar wallpaper plugin is compiled into the Debian standard Thunar (EDIT: libthunarx-2-0 in fact), and we don't want to have to compile our own version, just for a little thing like this. There is a fix though. Rename /usr/lib/{i386-linux-gnu,x86_64-linux-gnu}/thunarx-2/thunar-wallpaper-plugin.so and restart Thunar."
