Audio

Use alsaucm (part of the alsa-utils package) to set up the sound card:

ALSA_CONFIG_UCM=/opt/alsa/ucm alsaucm -c rk3399-gru-sound set _verb HiFi

Note that the port will display as "Headphones" despite using the speakers. When paired with pulseaudio and pulseaudio-alsa, be aware that the full volume range is addressed through levels 0-9 of the Master volume control. Levels 10-100 provide no additional gain.

If using pulseaudio, the following can be placed in your ~/.config/pulse/default.pa file to create a loopback device that fixes the volume levels, so that 0-100% in a desktop environment's volume bar will correspond to the audio level heard in the spaker.

.include /etc/pulse/default.pa
