    Tryed even that and nothing, still recognize my mic as speaker
    In some setups, you can either have multichannel sound or stereo + mic + line in. If you need to use your mic, configure speakers to stereo.

    I wonder if Win10 is using different way of audio processing than Win8.1. What else would explain so big differencies in audio quality. I have Alienware X51 R2 with Realtek ALC3861-CG audio chip and i tried one of these drivers, but also new official Realtek HD audio driver from january 2017, but audio quality is much worse, somehow muffled. Since there is no official Win10 driver for my system on DELL website, thank good for Win8.1 driver which is compatible and sound quality is much more better, clearer, more dynamic. Also MaxxAudio from Waves is working fine, but i don't use it. IMO not only Realtek has totally lost it but also Microsoft Windows 10 Update is offering me by default broken driver. MaxxAudio is not present and clicking on restore default settings gives me instant BSOD. What a sad joke both companies..

    Typical example of not-perfect MS drivers. That's why I prefer older OEM drivers (from manufacturer's site) over newer drivers from Windows Update.

    Yes I noticed that asturias7, the additional two only appeared today. Think I'll uninstall the 8125build I have on now and replace it with 8125 Crerators Update one just to see if I can detect any difference. My money is on no difference at all :)
