So controlling the playback device of 'bluetooth' device does not change
the playback volume? That doesn't sound right (no pun intended). Just
verify that the input level (mic's) is not muted and is more than say 60%.

When you have done the previous experiment without the .asoundrc, there
is one more thing I would like you to try.

In your case, use the arecord command using the appropriate number in
the corresponding device name. See if you can still play an audio file
(using aplay) and if you can then record some sound from it (using
