Exact same problem here also with CS6. Now that you mention it that was about the time I also started having problems.
VLC players works fine and all the CS6 applications work fine with audio but I all my audio controls are locked and itunes and quicktime player will not play anything. Also some web video doesn't play either such as on Vimeo.
I tried many things like you and for me the only thing that seems to help is resetting the PRAM. It used to work a lot more but now I have to do it many times before it will work again. Today has been more frustrating then usual and haven't had audio all day. Once it boots up working it is perfectly fine until I shut down again.
17" MBP 2.2Ghz
OS X 10.7.4

By the way just tried this and it seems to have worked without restarting. It made the computer run a bit slow for awhile but eventually cleared up.
sudo killall coreaudiod
Somebody suggested running that command in terminal.
It is clearly not a fix but may get us through this until Apple or Adobe can come up with a fix.
By the way thinking about it now this problem may have only happened with a recent OSX update. CS6 and OS X were running rock solid for a couple of weeks before the problems started.

I've tried killing coreaudio in Terminal, and it didn't work.
Also, zapping my PRAM doesn't work. Everytime I do it, I can't boot up without getting a Kernel Panic. I have some internal drives set as a software raid in Disk Utility. If I pull them out I can boot again, but the audio issues still persists.
What are you running for a GPU? You mentioned an AMD 1GB. Is it an Apple card or a flashed version? Since I recently installed a new card and CUDA drivers, I'm trying to narrow down if this is also effecting things.

I have a Mac Book Pro 17" with the built in AMD 6750. I wish I could update to a Cuda card since the OpenCL is still a bit buggy with CS6.
The problem seems to be getting worse and it now happens every time I. Shutdown. The terminal kill still works for me however. Perhaps the different audio devices between our two machines makes a difference there.

I'm having the exact same problem. Glad to know I'm not the only one! Installed CS6, updated to OS X 10.7.4 and now I get no system sound, iTunes won't play (stuck at 0:00), etc. just as you described. Sound works in all my Adobe applications so I can keep working in Premiere and After Effects thankfully, but it's quite frustrating to not have any other audio, especially when I want to preview things in Quicklook or Quicktime. I'm running a Mac Pro 3,1 and usually use Digital Out. I also have an AJA Kona 3 installed and it's grayed out and muted in System Prefs too, just like Internal, Line Out, and Digital Out.
Might try rolling my system back to 10.7.3 and see if that fixes it, but it sounds like this might be a problem only Adobe and/or Apple can solve.

We have the same issue: I say "we" because we have three seats of CS6 here. When it first happened on one workstation, I thought that it was simply the editor who messed something up.
However when it happened on workstation #2: i got suspicious, although it was the same editor.
I went to check workstation #3 which I use daily, however I normally use an external audio interface without OS X volume control and sure enough, the same thing.
On the first workstation I literally had to reinstall the OS to fix it. This is a horrible bug! Please let Adobe know:
