I upgraded from Wheezy to Stretch (via Jessie, via Jessie) and lost
sound in the process.

I have two sound devices--HD-AUDIO GENERIC (which corresponds to HDMI)
and HDA ATI SB (Realtek chip which I use for sound output).

Selecting the HDA ATI SB card in alsamixer (F6) was fruitless (although
you can eventually unmute muted channels there to positive effect).

I installed pavucontrol, and in the Configuration tab turned the HDMI
profile off and the analog duplex output which corresponds to my Realtek
chip on.

As I have no speakers, in Output Devices I selected headphones (I do have
headphones).

I now have sound through the headphones.
