PulseAudio is not working out of the box... and it`s full of problems.
Remove it and choose Alsa as the defaul audio server

Pulse audio has some major advantages, but if you prefer to remove it from your system, please see https://wiki.ubuntu.com/PulseAudio

Ok, but I don`t understant why is going out with every release of Ubuntu if still does not work and full of bugs...

Pulse audio is not the one with bugs. I spoke with a member of the Ubuntu Audio Team and the bugs area actually because we have a backward capability that lets you work without pulseaudio. If that is removed, a lot of bugs will be resolved, but people who bypass it cannot work at all.

If you do face a problem with pulseaudio, do log a bug.

read "the bugs area actually" as "the bugs are actually"

Thanks Nigel Babu, that solved my question.
