When executing the same command with HandBrakeCLI for Windows, everything is fine and audio is retained:
The only difference between the HandBrake instalations is build number; on Windows, HandBrake 1.1.2 (2018090500) is installed.

Keep up the good work, best regards,
Where did you download HandBrake from?
Please take note about broken 3rd party builds: https://handbrake.fr/docs/en/latest/get-handbrake/where-to-get-handbrake.html
We do not support these.
HandBrake was obtained from Packman (http://packman.links2linux.de/).
Can you try compiling from source: https://handbrake.fr/docs/en/latest/developer/build-linux.html (Ideally master, rather than 1.1.2)
I'm not sure what state the pacman repo is in, but it's not an official build.

@sr55, I haven't yet tried to compile HandBrake, but I had problems compiling it before because some system dependencies could not be satisfied, Will try to compile it again on some more recent system.
