Pulseaudio gave me also a lot headaches here. For example MPlayer was
playing back videos with stuttering sound, once I uninstalled PA, the
sound was playing back smoothly (ALSA).

Pulseaudio seem to "block" the sound device, means reserves it
exclusively to itself. I only needed PA for OBS to work (playback own
spoken words), else I run perfectly fine without it.
