    I've been having an issue with my realtek sound so I gave this version and a few previous versions in this thread a try.

    Unfortunately with all of them I now can't set my optical sound output to dolby digital 5.1 in windows or the realtek control panel :/

    My chip is ALC889 on a gigabyte 990fxa-ud3 motherboard. Also I'm running win 10 x64 Does this driver not support me?

    Edit: the driver version available on my motherboard website is 6.0.1.7553
    this driver allows me to turn on dolby digital 5.1 / DDL however theres some glitching with sound levels on win 10
    Realtek produce drivers which are dolby specific. All the drivers I've posted links to are not dolby versions. However I never personally use dolby so I'm not sure whether it can be enabled or not using the standard drivers.

    It's probably just the .inf file that needs to be modified as I noticed when I install Realtek drivers, the Dolby, THX and SRS files all get copied but just not used.

    Your post got me looking at the unzipped files in detail Almighty1 and you are correct. Several of the .inf files contain references to Dolby and there are also 6 Dolby .dll files.

    Makes me think I'll have to download one of the Dolby specific Realtek drivers to have a look what the difference is.

    And that's the reason the drivers are so big... If it was any bigger, you would think it's a OS!

    Finally, found a solution (not ideal but whatever). On audio settings, go and check "Disable all enhancements"

    I thought for sure I tried that before, and maybe I did. But with the latest driver vs 6.0.1.7695, and that check box, I no longer have the volume issue after pausing.

    My Lenovo pc has a separate Dolby program called Dolby digital plus.
    But my old laptop that had Dolby, it was recognised by the stock realtek HD drivers

    I have problems with the audio driver. Maybe someone can give me advice.
    Earlier I used Win7 and such settings of a microphone: volume 100%, microphone boost +20 dB and “Noise Suppression” and “Acoustic Echo Cancellation” were turned on. I had an excellent sound! Now I use Win10 with Driver version 6.0.1.7687 (I tried also other versions) and now my microphone have noise.
    I tried to choose the best settings and now use vol 90%, boost +10 dB, “Noise Suppression” and “Acoustic Echo Cancellation” is on. But I still have noise. If I put the microphone boost of +20 dB, then get very loud noise. It seems that in the driver for Win10 "Noise Suppression" feature works not as in Win7.
    Do you know which version of the driver "Noise Suppression" feature working as in Win7? (Maybe some kind of early version of the driver for Win10.)

    Feedback on 7695 WHQL and 7696 WHQL, was previously running 7687:

    Both 7695 and 7696 no longer has Realtek Sound Manager or anything Realtek installing to the Start Menu so it's only in the Control Panel which is probably better anyways.

    7695 works fine but 7696 seems to be similar to 7680 in which there are multiple versions of the same version and doesn't have sound even though Speaker Settings in Speakers under the Realtek Sound Manager works for the test sounds and DFX Audio Enhancer is showing the input signals.

    I have tried multiple uninstall and reinstalls and 7695 always works while 7696 doesn't.

    Could be that build 7696 is built as a Lenovo driver.
    It should work on other machines but possibly won't.
