I've both audio server, pulseaudio and pipewire. It's Ok?

With my surprise, launching inxi -A on my terminal i’ve this result

  Device-1: NVIDIA GA104 High Definition Audio driver: snd_hda_intel
  Device-2: AMD Starship/Matisse HD Audio driver: snd_hda_intel
  API: ALSA v: k6.1.53-1-MANJARO status: kernel-api
  Server-1: PipeWire v: 0.3.80 status: active
  Server-2: PulseAudio v: 16.1 status: active

How you can see i’ve both server audio installed on my system.
There is any problem for this? It’s normal?
I don’t remember i’ve installed no one of these, or al least seem to me.
It’s better to have only one installed on my system or these can work simultaneously less any problem?
Thanks for your help.

Check inxi-Aa to see more detailed information about audio servers

Also aplay -L | grep -A1 default to confirm default ALSA output is from PulseAudio

If pipewire-pulse had been installed to replace pulseaudio then inxi would not show PulseAudio, only PipeWire.
pulseaudio and pipewire-pulse replacement cannot be installed simultaneously
User can only install one of these packages to replace the other

PipeWire is a multimedia server and is required for Wayland on Gnome DE
Manjaro Gnome has pipewire + pulseaudio installed by default

Thank you for the reply
Actually i’m using pulseaudio wich default audio server
Maybe because i’m not using wayland (even if i’m using gnome)

Thank you again, you were clear and complete

I’m happy to see that there are no problem for my issue
