  I use a separate PA process for each user.With padevchooser I set the default sink for that user.Al program's,such as mediaplayers sends the sound to the correct usb device that is set as default for this user.
Only flash player in firefox or opera sends the sound to the first soundcard.And not to the default soundcard for this user.
