EDIT: I don't even see "speakers" listed as a feature unless you have the optional sound bar:

Yes i am sure. The monitor has line in and line out and i can select HDMI as audio source in the monitor OSD options ...

Anyway, should I not be able to see the HDMI audio source in "playback devices" in Sounds? It is supposed to list even disconnected/disabled devices but still nothing shows up...
