    Just one little question.. Am I okey only updating the drivers? Or is it better to do some kind of ''clean install'' ?

    Yes it's OK to update the drivers.

    Hi,

    A clean install can be done using the version with the setup routine. That will remove the present version prior to installing the new one.
    Or just use the drivers only, the old ones are set aside in "Windows\Last Good" which you can delete afterwards if you like.
    You would still need some software like Rapr (AKA Driver Explorer) to truly remove the old version though.

    Cheers,

    Put it this way, I'm in no hurry to remove it :) It's a big improvement over the last few releases, the top end roughness has gone. I think you could be right about the bass boost but it's still nicely defined.
    Overall it's got a sort of warm valve sound to it but the detail is still there.

    Whether it's better than build 8279 is the question, personally the jury is out on that.
    Thanks, as always, for your input.
    Yeah, I quite like it and I think you defined the sound well. "Valve" is spot on.

    8302 lack of punchy, not rich enough & treble also weak, but I prefer sticking with the latest version as always.

    After spending almost 1 week of testing - this is my result:

    Z370 Gigabyte Aorus Gaming 7 (ALC1220)

    6.0.1.8210 (Gigabyte website) - If I install these from Gigabyte website.. I can use EQ but I have huge mic problem + echo on TeamSepak/Discord and Skype (discord prob - Clyp - recorded by my friends on Discord).

    6.0.1.8281 (Gigabyte website) - Sound sounds pretty flat and I can not use EQ in Realtek Manager (not even in build in Windows EQ in Sound devices). Changes does not apply. But no microphone + echo problem.

    6.0.1.8295 (from Microsoft update catalog) - same as 8281 (can not change EQ, but no microphone problem)

    6.0.1.8302 (from Microsoft update catalog) - a bit better sound but everything almost the same as 8281 (can not change EQ, but no microphone problem)

    Everything works with USB headset, but I need to use 3,5mm jacks only on my headset.
