Windows 10: Latest Realtek HD Audio Driver Version
Firstly, thanks for the welcome, Brink! Long time viewer, first time poster.
Secondly, I didn't have time to look into this last night, so thanks for checking into this, Erp!
Thanks for the heads up erpster.
Use the driver that works. Despite what people say newer drivers are not always better sometimes they are worse.

Build 7647 WHQL of the Realtek HD drivers released today 30/10/15

Don't bother with version 7647 I posted above.
Sound is very muzzy compared to the last couple of builds.
I went from 7640 WHQL which was installed using the setup.exe method to the Windows 10 only 7644 WHQL right I updated via device manager and it still prompted to reboot as the current loaded driver was still 7640 WHQL. When I rebooted, the system tray icon is gone and basically Realtek Sound Manager is reset to defaults which I needed to configure all again, the Stereo Mix under Recording is disabled by default, I had to toggle the display icon in system tray so it would show the icon and then had to do my equalizer settings again. So it seems, upgrading via device manager for me still required rebooting.
Here is another link to the 7647 drivers (from the MSUC):
I will install these and let you know if there is an issue with the quality, considering DooGie's comment.
I didn't upgrade to 7647 as I had a chance to prior to rebooting after installing 7644 because of DooGie's comment.
I can confirm that this driver package, at least on my system (Win10 build 10240) is 'broken'. Something causes failure in all modes except standard stereo mode; all other modes (quadraphonic, 5.1, and 7.1 work sporadically or not at all). I'm also having an issue with the task tray icon staying present, even though the option has been enabled (and even disabled and then re-enabled) in the Audio Manager.
I'm going to look further into this and make sure it's not something else causing the issues.

New RealTek HD Audio Driver available in WU.
My ASUS M4N68T-M V2 has a VIA VT1708S onboard audio. The driver I have that worked in Windows 8.1 v10_1200a won't work in 10. Windows doesn't even see the onboard video so it doesn't even look for a driver. It doesn't show up in device manager. In...
