Note that these are different filenames. /etc/asound.conf is a system-wide
setting (settings for all users on the system), whereas ~/asoundrc is only
for the current user (~ refers to the homedirectory for the current user).

Is there any relation or conflict between those two files?

Usually the file in the homedir (~) will overrule any global (/etc)
settings. They may be merged, but the global one could also be ignored if a
personal one exists.

It might be wise to inspect the contents of /usr/share/apulse/asoundrc.sample
as that is an example config.

Mvg, Guus
