Assuming you're using pulseaudio, you probably want one of:-

$ pactl (list|info)

There are a load more options for setting source/sink details, but the 
above two give you an overview. There's also "alsa-info", which collects 
information about your overall sound setup, but I think that might be a 
Debian thing.
