Debian 8.2.0 - Installing Audio Firmware and ALSA Config Files

I know very little about Debian but have an ASUS T100TA tablet which runs fairly well under Debian 8.2 Jessie (kernel 3.16.0-4-686-pae). I used the following guide successfully to activate the wireless but am having trouble with the audio section of it.

First, I went here and downloaded the file called 'NEW T100_B.state'.

Then I copied NEW T100_B.state to /var/lib/alsa/asound.state and ran 'alsactl restore' which reported that i had no soundcards.

I then downloaded and expanded linux-firmware-master-intel.tar.gz but am not sure what to do with these files. I copied them to /lib/modules/3.16.0-4-686-pae/kernel/drivers/firmware as they are specific for this kernel, but they don't seem to be doing anything and 'alsactl restore' still tells me that I don't have a soundcard. I also tried copying them to /lib/firmware with the same lack of results. What do I need to do with these files? The attachment is a small jpeg image showing the file names. Thank you!
