JFTR. I found the exact opposite!  Removing PulseAudio made everything

How exactly is that possible?

How exactly is it possible to get an audio card working with PA ;)? YMMV! All three audio cards in my machine only work without pulseaudio, this is possible by simply not having pulseaudio installed and using ALSA "instead". Pulseaudio does use ALSA itself ;)! Unfortunately "the" pulseaudio developer blames ALSA drivers for his bad code.

For most audio tasks I'm using jackd2 (non-dbus), but also with ALSA ;). We only need ALSA. Pulseaudio, jackd etc. are optional sound servers.
