    Double ditto. Things have totally transformed! I just had to join this forum to let you guys know how dang good this driver. Although this is not widely reported, Realtek audio devices had a noticeable step down in quality with the release of Windows 10 a few years ago. Prior to this driver release, I had to go in, turn off Connected Standby and switch my Surface to High Performance mode to fix the haze and the compressed dynamic range. Previously, I had confirmed this issue in blind tests of myself and several family members and we could immediately tell there was a distinct difference in audio quality when switching between power plans. But now, on my Surface Pro 4 i7, I listen through my trusty Beyerdynamic T90 headphones and the improvement is immediately noticeable with this latest driver release. Seriously, the audio is crazy good! The Surface Pro 3 and later have already have had audio output with performance rivaling that of many entry-level DACs. This driver release, once and for all, fixes all those pesky Windows 10-related audio hitches and gives me deliciously clear sound without any hacks required. Now, for another round of a happy dance...
    Triple ditto... impressive! Finally, Realtek

    It is quite sad how long Realtek has been holding back their audio codecs since the Windows 10 transition. I thought--and think, when patched--so highly of well-implemented modern Realtek chipsets that I retired my ODAC and just use my Objective2. When the drivers are done right, that is just how plain good Realtek HD audio is.

    Get the generic one 8551_FF00 and use the Realtek HD Audio Driver WHQL SVF to repackage to the FF10. I did it for my FF04
