Hi Paul.

As usual I suspect Pulseaudio as the culprit, as it can be responsible for low 
volume levels.

First though, open alsamixer as user in a terminal, as below.

alsamixer -D hw:0

Assuming that your card is card0, this should show all sliders for your 
soundcard. Check for ones like, Master, PCM, Front, CD, which should be up.

If all's ok in alsamixer, try disabling Pulseaudio (unless you particularly 
want it), by removing the package, alsa-plugins-pulseaudio, then reboot, and 
see if the sound levels are any better.

All the best.

Nigel.
