I have a 1525n with Kubuntu Hardy (8.04) and to get full volume I have to slide the PCM and/or 
Front volume sliders from 100% to 0% and back to 100% to get volume on both channels (with the 
sound only coming out of one channel it is obviously lower in volume).
I don't know why this happens and I haven't bothered to find out why...
