No success with audio - crmcalls - 04-15-2021

I have Manjaro with DWM running on the RockPro64 and have just dealt with the audio not working however it's becoming an issue.
Is there anything that needs to be done beyond installing pulseaudio and pavucontrol because I've done that and still no luck.

I use Armbian and it works well. Some hints :
- my conf file is /etc/pulse/daemon.conf and only comtains "deferred-volume-safety-margin-usec = 1" all other lines are commented
- try to play with the pulse audio mixer. Alsa mixer is rather complicate
- the alsa mixer may interfere
- the sound is quite low. You may need to increase the volume
- test : "speaker-test -c6 -l1 -twav" c6 = number of channel
- check with the headphone !

if nothing works try with the alsa mixer : "alsamixer"
and increase the DAC volume (use the arrow keys to move)

Thanks for the response! I tried all the hints you listed to no avail sadly. I'll run Armbian off of a microSD and
see if I can get audio playing on that. I'm just hoping it is something to do with Manjaro and not the hardware itself.
