Lennart has already answered but I should also say that newer
pavucontrols (e.g. newer than the one in Ubuntu) deprecate the volume
In addition paman is generally of little day-to-day use and paprefs is
also only used occasionally.
So really, pavucontrol is all you need on a daily basis.
I've added a pavucontrol icon to my panel :)
As for the libnotify popups from padevchooser when it discovers network
sinks etc. I've got a plan for that... I need to wait until Lennart lets
his bag of tricks loose on how to integrate the glib mainloop of a
library into pulses mainloop (there are other ways to achieve this but
I'd rather wait and do it the easy way!)

If you've got an X11 session on the source then this shouldn't be needed
(setting the PULSE_SERVER) if your SSH is setup to forward X11 sessions
(it's a switch to ssh... -x IIRC and usually it defaults to on). As
pulse can check the root window properties (xprop -root | grep pulse)
and as the root window is forwarded via SSH, this "just works(tm)".
I used it all the time. SSH into another machine on the network and run
an audio app :)
