I've never found *any* sound subsystem on Linux to be "reliable and
flexible".  And when you have a system
  with *both* Pulse and Alsa-backwards-compat-mode, it's a frikken
nightmare. The problem seems to be that
  for over a decade, everybody wanted *their* Kewl sound subsystem to be
incorporated into Linux distributions.
  So everyone go their wish, and there are no standards.
