comment mpd fails to open ALSA device where aplay succeeds
A globally available device should be put into /etc/asound.conf. A device available for the user mpd should be put into /home/mpd/.asoundrc.

comment Can't open audio device /dev/dsp: Device or resource busy
Then you also got an error message regarding ALSA. Are you using PulseAudio? Does mplayer's configuration find it?

/dev/dsp is not an ALSA interface. How did you configure mplayer?

comment No sound in arch linux with xfce4
You don't need the asound.conf. And when speaker-test works, everything is fine as far as ALSA is concerned. Any problem you have is with whatever software you're using to play sounds, which you have kept a secret.

I don't know what those options are. Anyway, this question is about Elementary OS; ask a new question with proper information.

Your machine has (at least) three different audio outputs (analog, S/PDIF, HDMI). It's likely to use the wrong one unless you configure it ("System Settings", "Sound").
