After upgrading to systemd 206 /dev/snd/seq and /dev/snd/timer have permission 0600.
Found this: https://bugs.archlinux.org/task/24362
This was fine in 204.
EDIT: I'm not running a display manager but rather starting XBMC through a service. The user is in the audio group, which no longer can access the sound card because of permissions.

I'm torn apart between worlds. Basically, using vim in a highly visual environment with a lot of mouse features feels like soldering a lose wire to a motherboard with a Zippo and a needle, while working with ANY TEXT AT ALL with a "modern GUI" text editor feels like joining the London Philharmonic Orchestra with a Fisher-Price Laugh and Learn Magical Musical Mirror. --Awebb
Ok, it seems like systemd is supposed to give access to the logged in user. I have been running xinit through a service and so the user is never actually logged in. Hasn't been a problem before as I just added my user to the groups that had access. I installed slim and made it autologin instead and now it works as it should without being a member of audio group.
