I opened this bug report  that ends up in this 2nd bug report

Nah, it's not related. My issue is that with KMix I can't get to the
mixer controls of my sound card and thus I can't change stereo up-mix
settings or change DAC settings. I also can't change the hardware volume
(PulseAudio is unfortunately not smart enough at the moment to properly
control the modern-style mixer controls, it only supports the legacy
mixer control format.)
I can get to them with "alsamixer -c0" (or just "alsamixer" and then
press F6 to switch to another device), but well, I like GUIs and was
hoping I can do that from within the KMixer UI.
