Aha! I found the problem, at least with audacity. Audacity has a drop down
combobox with output options. The default is, "HD-Audio Generic: ALC1220
digital (HW:1,1)" and there's no speaker output.

And, when I change the output to "HD-Audio Generic: ALC1220 digital
(HW:1,0)" the same test recoding is heard from the speakers.

When I look at pavucontrol's Configure tab I don't see options with ALC1220
or HW:1,x. It seems that it's pavucontrol's output option that needs
changing. How do I determine which will work?
