Is that really all todo to switch from pulseaudio to pipewire on Debian 
Bullseye with backports enabled?

I'd also like to try pipewire but fear to end up with an unuseable system 
when just removing pulseaudio and install the packages you mensioned above.

Can you give more details about the migration from pulseaudio to pipewire if 
more steps are needed please? What todo next after removing and installing 
the necessary packages?

Cheers and thanks,
