It looks like you have both Pipewire and pulse-audio up and running.

Server-1: PipeWire v: 1.0.1 status: active with: 1: wireplumber
status: active 2: pipewire-alsa type: plugin 3: pw-jack type: plugin
Server-2: PulseAudio v: 17.0 status: active

They are probably in conflict, the next step depends on what you would like to do - if you want to remove pulse-audio you could run:
