I have also used asoundconfig to find even more faders and switchs in 
the driver. I found on the newer mac mini's the sound was muted by 
default in linux, despite everything being 100% in alsamixer. 
asoundconfig allowed me to change the "internal speaker master" and 
"headphone socket master" which were oddly true/false rather than % but 
it worked! alsactl can then load and save the configs you change with 
asoundconfig to restor the settings at reboot etc.
