In my game, Power Stance from Man-at-Arms does work, though, oddly, not the first time it's activated (but from the second use on, it's fine). And this didn't-work-the-first-time-but-did-the-second was true for the Expert Marksman stances as well prior to the patch. However, both power and precision stances from Expert Marksman are now soundless, though they boast the latest version's new animations.
I created a separate thread about this shortly after the latest patch arrived. I've also updated my sound drivers and made a few other tweaks to no avail. Since sounds work pretty much fine in the rest of the game (though some sounds, like part of the casting sounds or blowing up a trap on the ground, occasionally fail, they don't do so consistently). I'm confident this is a game issue and not a PC issue.
For what it's worth, I'm using the Realtek HD sound that's native to my Asus motherboard, which works flawlessly with my many other games.
