[SOLVED] Alsa sound not working

I am having a hard time finding documentation on how to get my sound working.
The things I find I do not understand.
I am on a Asus Zenbook UX305

I installed alsa-utils package

$ amixer sset Master unmute
amixer: Unable to find simple control 'Master',0
$ alsamixer

I get the alsamixer menu with three choices:

   00             00              00
S/PDIF     S/PDIF 1     S/PDIF 2

I hit f6 and get 4 choices:
- (default)
0 HDA Intel HDMI
1 HDA Intel PCH
enter device name...

The choice that brings me to the Alsa menu I am used to is the HDA intel PCH option
Now I can select the different options:
Master, Headphone, hit f5 for the mic stuff.....

Note: I unmuted beep and did get the computer to beep

When I escape the menu and return back to it I am presented with the
original S/PDIF options.

$ speaker-test -c x

Re: [SOLVED] Alsa sound not working

HDMI is set as your default - you need to set PCH to be the default:
