    Thanks DooGie.
    v6.0.1.8108 is floating around as well, but I don't know if that will ever surface on the MU site.

    Took MS long enough for them to post 8105 on MUC but 8108 has also recently came out on some 3rd party sites (which I won't be downloading them since I'm ok with v8105)

    Seems like the Windows 10 v1703 Creators Update has broken certain Realtek HD Audio chips with DTS Encoding.
    See this Reddit forum topic about the Realtek audio + DTS problem.

    I don't know if either installing 8105 or 8108 will solve the problem but the fault lies in both Microsoft and Realtek.

    Instead what I found on my other PC that still has Win7 is that the startup sound disappears with the MUC updates, while it reappears and plays normally if I revert back to the last update (R2.81) posted on Realtek's website.

    Based on many similar experiences, makes my reluctant to trust Windows Update and I prefer installing latest official (OEM) drivers directly from manufacturer's site. In the majority of cases, it is better to install an older OEM driver than a newer Microsoft driver. Of course there are exceptions, but they are exceptions, not the rule.

    I wanted to bring this to everyone's attention. MUC now has two v6.0.1.8105 updates, one for Windows 10 & one for Windows 10 Anniversary. But this is not what is important. When I updated 2 days ago, the package contained 277 files and 3 folders. Now both updates contain only 43 files and 0 folders, as can be seen below in this screenshot I took.

    Probably the first version was the full package and the new contains only the changes and it cannot be installed in all Realtek HD systems, only those affected.

    Version 6.0.1.8096 from ASUS [this is a Win10 x64 only driver - for Realtek audio chipsets in ASUS computers only, Realtek audio devices with Subsystem IDs beginning with "1043"]
    Contains fewer INF files (the hdxrt.inf file NOT included but the hdxrt4.inf file is there).

    Realtek audio + DTS problem could be resolved by installing at least the Win10 v1703 KB4016251 update (along with installing the newest drivers)

    Edit 4/10: Ah, an 6.0.1.8096 driver has recently shown up on MUC but this one supports Realtek audio chipsets beside the ones from ASUS

    Don't ask me what the heck MUC are doing, but now the Windows 10 Anniversary 6.0.1.8105 update is back to being a "full" update, but now when you extract it, it is up from 277 previously to 285 files. It's all so confusing. I wish both Realtek and WUC would provide changelogs or some sort of explanation along with these updates.
