No audio devices showing in system setting. No sound output

I did something stupid and needed to reinstall Manjaro.
From past experience I have had issues with pipewire and pulseaudio conflicting. So I deleted all pulseaudio and installed pipewire pipewire-pulse and pipewire-media-session.After rebooting System setting shows no audio devices and the only configuration was for the hdmi plug which I have nothing attached at this moment.

Device-1: Intel Comet Lake PCH cAVS vendor: Hewlett-Packard
driver: sof-audio-pci-intel-cnl bus-ID: 00:1f.3 is my laptop sound I believe.
Am I missing a driver or something?

Install sof-firmware and manjaro-pipewire packages and reboot.
