    # pciconf -lv

or look at the dmesg output from when the system last booted up:

    % less /var/run/dmesg.boot

or if the sound card is supported by the pcm(4) driver:

    # cat /dev/sndstat

[although these last two are less useful if you don't have an
appropriate driver available in the kernel or the loadable kernel
modules for that particular sound card].
