This is weird.  Installing pulseaudio allowed me to set the volume using the
'-D pulse' switch, but  I could get nothing from the speakers.  So I purged
pulseaudio and my speakers burst into life again.

The weird thing is that the command:

amixer -D pulse set Master 50%

still works.

How can that be?

Has Raspbian perhaps switched to using PipeWire for audio I wonder? Pipewire is meant to overcome the many issues with Pulseaudio so I wonder if they might have done that, and that is the cause of the old commands not working.

Definitely makes me think twice about upgrading the river system pis.
