    Restart sound system without restarting computer

    I've have an issue where sometimes there's no sound in Ubuntu 18.04. Restarting the computer usually resolves this issue. Is there an terminal command I can use to restart the sound system (alsa/pulseaudio) without rebooting?

    I have a couple of boxes that lose sound on occasion after suspend, which I can correct by toggling the profile off & back on in `pavucontrol` (last configuration tab). If you want a GUI method, it maybe worth a shot.
