I had the same problem on the new iMac, seeing only the headphones output for Sound in preferences, even though my iTunes played normally through the external speakers that are plugged in. So, I tried resetting PRAM with the wireless keyboard that came with the iMac and it did not seem to work -- I got only the normal reboot and no chimes (as I have gotten over the years on the other computers).
So, I got the plug-in keyboard from the old iMac and used that and got three sets of chimes before I allowed it to boot normally.
AND NO DIFFERENCE. Still got the same lack of output choices under Sound Prefs.
Going to do this once more and see if that corrects it, then go out and search the userbase for any other ideas.
I wanted to use Skype and the video chat and got the video to work fine, just no audio.
Guess I will also hunt up a set of compatible headphones and try that...
Square Wheels are everywhere -- things work, just not smoothly...
