    This one is on Windows Update Catalog and personally I'd rather update from Windows than from 3rd part sites.

    Personal opinion/tastes: I'm keeping 8366, sounds good on my system and my setup.
    Others can judge for themselves, but to me everything sounds good, from treble to bass, etc.

    This one worked for me, but then it also met the 134MB+ size criterion that some members have suggested is critical for it be of general and broad use. And so it proved this time -- for me, at least. Thanks, Brink!

    These are the latest ones on the ASUS site, so I actually have a newer version than I'm supposed to...
    Attachment 176798

    As for the jacks,
    I'm using green/black/yellow for front/rear/center.

    That's how I used it since I got the speakers six years ago and that's how it worked on Windows 7,
    ever since I upgraded it just doesn't work... Not even the same version I used there, only like a milion years old version works but it's missing a lot of features.
    the latest ASUS based (and customized) realtek audio drivers is actually v6.0.1.8339 (with DTS Audio, Sonic Studio, Sonic Radar & Sonic Suite applications included) [368Mb] Win10 x64 only - this was mentioned on the Station Drivers site a while ago but the direct link points to the asus site for the actual download.

    About my previous comments about version of the mbapo232.dll & mbapo264.dll files included in that 137.8Mb v8356 driver package from MS; they do work on the Win10 anniversary update v1607 release - now I'll have to test them on the RTM/1507 release of Win10.

    supported IDs listed for that 8356 (137.8mb) driver pack are the following:
    Subsystem IDs beginning with "1558" indicate the vendor ID is Clevo. Gigabyte & Clevo are long time partners with Creative Labs

    Get 8366 for those who want it. version 8365 no longer shows up on any recent MS Update Catalog searches as I found out recently and yield no results for that version.

    I hope this is this right place to ask for help, if not please point me to the right direction.

    I have had the same setup since Windows 7: Asus P8Z77-V LX Realtek spdif optical from MB to AV Receiver to 5.1 speakers and everything has been fine for years. The latest Win10 update for some reason only sends audio to Front-Right + Side-Left despite AV Receiver indicating Dolby signal (so the result is audio stage severely shifted to the right). I found this thread and updated to the latest driver 8366. I now get sounds from all channels but feel that the audio stage is still to the right (certain sounds/instruments seem to only come from right). I don't think it's my AV Receiver as stereo is still perfectly centered and sounds bypassing AV Receiver (GPU HDMI audio directly to TV) also seems shifted to the right but harder to tell as the speakers are much closer on the TV. I also don't notice a shift when testing speakers using the AV Reciever's test tones. The Center speaker seems fine as well.

    I've tried all tricks I can find on Web including dozens of different driver versions (the latest 8366 seems to have the least shift), disabled sound effects in Windows and played around with sample rates. Window's audio balance doesn't do anything and speaker configuration is greyed out for Optical Out. I cannot use HDMI audio for the AV Receiver because it predates HDMI 1.2.

    Anyone else had/have this problem or am I just paranoid? After weeks of going crazy I think it's something Microsoft did with Dolby codec that Realtek is struggling to correct, but why and how?
