I've tried manjaro too but I downloaded the i3 one cause I wanted to try out one of those windows managers. Couldn't fix the audio so I never got to use it.
That's because Manjaro i3 doesn't come with pulseaudio. Install pulseaudio and pavucontrol through pacman, and add pavucontrol to your .profile and your audio should be fine
The i3 edition of Manjaro really requires you to know what you're doing, I would recommend the KDE version instead.
You CAN technically run without Pulse, and hating Pulse is sort of a meme in the Linux community, but it's basically the only mature solution for audio, especially since ALSA doesn't even support multiple audio streams. You should use it.
