Windows 10: No bass in surround Solved

    So to add to the troubleshooting list, I am now going straight from my video card .. to the receiver .. to my monitor and have switched to the Microsoft HD driver... same issue.

    In doing more google searches, I suspect this is something with W10. There are just too many people with different set ups having the exact same issue but some are resolved with updating the driver while others like myself and fakecrap4 haven't had luck doing that.

    I'm going to keep plugging away ... bass works if I change it to stereo so I could live with that for a while and even though the PCM signal being passed shouldn't be an issue, something about that raises a red flag.

    Okay I will mark this as solved as I have fixed my issue. Here is what I did:

    • After trying all the common suggestions about drivers and such, I had no luck
    • On a whim, I bought a sound card and hooked it up via the optical cable.
    • I also changed the speaker settings on my receiver from Large to Small.
    • I removed all sound drivers other than those for my sound card (Soundblaster ZX)


    I now have bass in surorund sound. I also have it set to 5.1 in Windows and have checked all speakers with a surround sound audio file I downloaded.

    My guess is that the driver coming off of the Nvidia card is only in 2.1 and it just can't decode/send the right sounds to the receiver over HDMI.

    At any rate, hopefully this will help someone else.
