    Drivers updated thru Device manager do not require reboot but drivers updated from .setup.exe do restart twice because at first run it uninstalls drivers and after restart it installs new drivers requiring another restart.
    That's true for my systems with 1703, but for some reason my Insider Preview always demands a reboot when I update the Realtek audio driver via Device Manager.

    Hi,

    Same here @larc919 but you can safely ignore that message if you'd like. It does no harm whatsoever, the new audio drivers are ready to be used anyway.

    Thanks. That's what I've been doing with no ill effects, but good to know it's safe.

    The more I use the build 8205 drivers the more I like them. They sound a lot more analogue than previous releases

    That brings back memories of old VOX aC30 amps
    More likely they've just rolled off the top end slightly to get rid of over splashy cymbals etc. whatever, 8205 sounds a good build to me. Have you tried them out yet fdegrove ? if so what is your opinion of the latest build.

    Hi,
    @DooGie: Tongue firmly in cheek that was, of course.

    Yes, I did test these a little and I do agree. This is a good build, LOL.

    Just tried them by watching Shyamalan's 'Split'
    They sound excellent to me... Volume levels seem back to normal.... Seperation of various sounds for surround experience is lot improved.
    Moreover experiencing more depth in bass & more balanced highs
    Definitely a good improvement

    Yes I realised it was tongue in cheek, I just liked it because it did bring back memories of when I had a VOX AC30 guitar amp and on those VOX pushed the theory that they were using even order harmonic distortion to give the amp it's unique sound
