No sound output from 3.5mm jack

Hey fellow Rockers,
I'm having some trouble getting sound to play from the 3.5mm port on my rockpro 64
Kernel: Linux rockpro64 4.4.132-1075-rockchip-ayufan-ga83beded8524 #1 SMP Thu Jul 26 08:22:22 UTC 2018 aarch64 GNU/Linux
Distro: Debain Stretch 9.6

This is my first time encountering an audio problem so I'm not 100% I went through the all basics, but here's what I've done so far:
  • Verified my user is in the audio group
  • installed pulseaudio and pavucontrol
  • changed my default sinks to every option available with pacmd change-default-sink
  • verified my volume was turned up in alsamixer
  • played a known good file with aplay as local user and su
  • tried a new headset, and tried the same headset in a different device. The headset is good.
  • Searched this forum and followed Longsleep's recommendations posted here
  • rebooted multiple times after iterating through these steps
None of these steps remedied the issue, and I still don't have any sound output from the 3.5mm. I was able to get audio through the HDMI port one time, but that happened unintentionally.

I'm not sure what to do next, so here I am. Thanks in advance for any assistance.
PS. lspci produces no output. Is this normal?

I have yet to get any sound out of my 3.5mm port under Linux. There are various "hints" that it is possible - I am sure it is but nobody has yet given instructions that made sense to me. e.g. see this thread. The one thing that I haven't tried, that IMHO may be worth a shot, is Armbian.

Yup - the pci (linux) modules are compiled as option to load ("M" only if needed).

  • Verified my user is in the audio group
  • installed pulseaudio and pavucontrol
  • changed my default sinks to every option available with pacmd change-default-sink

  • played a known good file with aplay as local user and su
  • tried a new headset, and tried the same headset in a different device. The headset is good.
  • Searched this forum and followed Longsleep's recommendations posted here
  • rebooted multiple times after iterating through these steps
None of these steps remedied the issue, and I still don't have any sound output. It's possible that it's sending the signal through the HDMI cable, but my monitor doesn't support audio so I can't tell.

We, collectively, can't get sound working from the 3.5mm port in Linux?
