Thanks for investigation and reply.
Meanwhile a guy from KXStudio made QtMultimedia free of this
dependency (build Qt without audio plugin) so they have got solution
as well.
By the way, I ported that audio background to RtAudio witch simply
switches among available audio "engines" - JACK, Pulse, Alsa.
I think it was intended in QtMultimedia: when Pulse is not available -
Alsa starts.
Maybe there is a bug.
