I've managed to get my USB speaker working. The problem is that if I change the system volume it either produces a 100% volume or (almost) 0% volume. It has a threshold where it just skips from playing to quiet. But when I run alsamixer, I can raise the volume gradually from 0 to 100%. How do I convince the system volume tray to behave like alsamixer PCM dB gain parameter?

I've also noticed that when I change the system volume for just a little (say 5%), in alsamixerlets the volume skips for more than 50%).

Arch has a very nice wiki for troubleshooting PulseAudio: PulseAudio Troubleshooting.

See the paragraphs Volume adjustment does not work properly and Volume gets louder every time a new application is started. Good luck.
