    Microphone volume seems to be very low even with the 30db boost on also.
    I don't understand what happened, just reinstalled windows today is the creator's update the fault?
    As CountMike posted it's all down to the driver version and what mobo you have. I suggest you try out some different versions of the Realtek HD Audio driver and see if any perform correctly for you.
    I'm running Creators Update and have no problems with Realtek Driver version 6.0.1.8135, however I've had no problem with Realtek drivers for the last eight years apart from the occasional one that sounded bad.
    Have a look here and try a few out. Microsoft Update Catalog

    That's why you should keep a copy of an older working driver. If latest driver doesn't work as expected you can always reinstall the older working driver. Once you find a newer working driver, keep a copy of that as well.

    install generic driver from realtek website & then update to 8004 through device manager

    one thing ive noticed is that in some of the realtek drivers, the waves maxx files appear to be missing

    I have a xps 8700 Dell Inc. 0KWVT8 mobo and 8135 sounds great...but I cant open the dell audio tab in control panel

    all the enhancements are there still if i open the sound app and go to the enhancements tab so its not a big deal but It is a functional difference

    for me the major thing is the quality of sound and like I said it sounds better than 8035 which was what the realtek site offers in the r281 driver 64bit

    it just depends on whats more important to you

    Need a good HD audio manager


    Hey guys.

    Does anyone know what the current or latest Realtek HD Audio driver is? My motherboard is an ASUS Crosshair V Formula-Z. I need the best driver and audio manager available for Windows 10 that includes bass and surround sound enhancement equalisation. I have in my apartment an EDGE 900W car sub powered by a 600/650W PSU and for my sound system a Philips FWM608/08 (originally 600W) stereo system. I swapped one of the dual amps inside the Philips stereo system with an 800W amp. The car sub is connected via an RCA/AUX cable into a splitter which has another AUX cable that goes from the Philips amp/stereo to the splitter and car sub AUX cable. The splitter then connects directly into the back of my PC.

    Unfortunately the attachments isn't letting me upload the zip file containing a video clip of the car sub in action. You can download it externally from my webserver FTP.

    WARNING!: The sound you hear from the video is distortion from the low bass frequencies coming from the sub. It is apparent that my Galaxy S6 Edge microphone isn't so great at picking up such frequencies. :P

    Is there any other HD Audio Managers with what I asked for though? I need something that can enhance or make my sound clarity clearer like Realtek's manager but need better equalisation settings.

    Unfortunately Realtek changes features from MB to MB, for some there's more options and for some they are downright poor. Newest drivers not necessarily mean new of more features or options.

    If you want something better forget onboard audio cards such as Realtek HD. You need a discrete audio card such as Creative SoundBlaster Xi-Fi (games) or M-Audio (Professional)
