    Here's something...interesting.

    I tried the UAD 6.0.9137.1 driver (the following applies to all UAD drivers) from MUC. It installs and sounds great, but lacks all effects and control panel (I won't do Nahimic, Creative Sound Blaster, etc.) because I'm on LTSC with no store. I could live with the stripped down feature set, but here's a problem.

    1. I can not select between rear output to speakers, and front output to headphones. If headphones are plugged in, they play. If unplugged, speakers play.
    2. However, the second I hot-unplug them my PC instantly crashes, like pulling the cable out was an off switch, with the following event viewer complaints:

    Code:
    The previous system shutdown at 2:36:32 PM on 5/12/2021 was unexpected.
    
    The system has rebooted without cleanly shutting down first. This error could be
    caused if the system stopped responding, crashed, or lost power unexpectedly.
    All UAD drivers = stripped down, featureless CRAP for me. Back to good old, ancient HDA 6.0.1.8328 for me. Full featured, full control panel, no bugs.

    Rant: Why do they have to take a perfectly good and effective system (old HDA drivers with just Realtek default controls and effects) and cripple it, then force us to use third party, buggy garbage apps (Nihimic, Creative, etc) to only partially restore features via yet another layer of sh** software? I assume it is a marketing gimmick where they attempt to trick us into thinking the motherboards have some "brand name" high falutin audio system instead of a plain old cheapo Realtek codec? Thing is, there is nothing wrong with a plain old cheapo Realtek codec these days! Leave it the f#$% alone!

    Well, nobody seems to have posted yet, but there appears to be a 6.0.9143.1 up. The 11.2 MB one is OEM.

    Although my hp laptop doesn't use any of these 3rd party apps (Nahimic, Creative etc.) I did something very simple (expensive...but simple).

    I got myself an Audioquest Dragonfly Cobalt USB DAC/Amplifier, where I plug in my headphones (any type, even very hard to drive ones) and I enjoy music the way it's supposed to be! No Realtek driver, No 3rd party apps...just great sound!

    Up until midnight (my time), Microsoft still hadn't posted the OEM option(s)...
    anyhow, thanks for the heads up.

    If anyone wants 6.0.9143.1:

    well asturias7 & Mervil 9143 UAD was available on MUC several days ago but only the Asus based 10.7Mb package was there until MS recently posted the "all OEM" 11.2Mb version

    edit - speaking of 9143, MSI recently has a 9143 UAD version of their own posted on their web site (for many MSI laptops, desktops & motherboards)

    Here's a link to Mokichu's 9137 MSI driver on my google drive Mokichu.AUDIO_Realtek_UAD_MSI_MB_v6.0.9137.1_Update_Only.7z - Google Drive

    @MoKiChU I hope it's ok for me to repost your old driver :)
    here's a "full" 9137 UAD MSI driver (complete with many "Realtek Device Extension" 9137 INF files) if you need it, Texas Gore. {old link removed; posted a "repacked" or re-released version from this new link, adding additional extension INF files and Realtek APO2 files}
    also bundles Installshield setup.exe installer - this one can be clean installed (aka installed with no previous version) or update from previous version

    I've tried to do similar by buying an Asus Xonar SE (has usb audio chip on PCIe board), and Focusrite Scarlett 2i4. Problem is there is something weird with my setup where all USB audio has dropouts/stutters that no amount of tweaking or BIOS flashing seems to fix. UGH! I'd be fine with plain old Realtek if it weren't for all the new third party crap attached to it these days.

    A good choice Cliff, a great sounding driver. I've been switching between9137.1 and 9155.1 for the past week but last night decided to stick with 9137.1 as for me it sounds more detailed and smoother.

    Doing great job for me just wish Console worked better with more options. It wasn't updated since first install.
    Working equalizer is most important because of my hearing.

    But (there's always one) Front and Rear output jacks are reversed.
