it is strange that headphone is at rear panel of a desktop
how many audio jacks do you desktop have ?
do the internal speaker connect to the mono out node 0x16 ?

The ALC262 series provide 4 DAC channels, supporting stereo sound playback
on the rear panel and independent stereo sound output on the front panel
simultaneously (multiple streaming), along with flexible mixing, mute, and
fine gain control functions to provide a complete integrated audio solution.

Supports MONO line output with independent volume control
