Pulse audio has worked great for me for quite a while in the Kubuntu series. My biggest beef with PA is I still can't get bit perfect sound out of it. I have to use the deadbeef player and send the sound directly to ALSA for any critical listening. I wish there was a setting that I could use to not get it to mangle and resample the audio before it goes out to my speakers.
