    I find the high hats sound a bit sishy now.
    Instead it ts ts ts, the high hats go sish sish sish.


    To test what I mean:
    It sounds fine here Cliff on the generic ff00 version.

    I have tried both on my Soundbar and my Dolby Atoms headset and I get the same weak high hats.
    It's like some sadist took a great FLAC 1.3.2 recording and converted it to a 64bps MP3
    But only on the highs, mids and bass are still ok.

    Yeah a lot of trial and error in learning just what was "DAC" and what was realtek...

    I played with usb mode, using jriver dedicated/exclusive mode which obviously bypasses the driver. But going that way still makes you use the jriver middleman anyway and there were some weird crackles and such at times. So I decided to just run optical out and switch playback devices between my headphones and speakers. Yes this is a "no no" to the audiophiles because windows sound is "bad" but to be honest, I listened for hours and couldn't really hear a difference. Plus I can still always select "disable all sound effects" in realtek control panel to bypass nahimic (also disabling my eq settings which I don't like), and additionally select exclusive mode in tidal. Then I'm straight to the dac with no driver. But I need my eq. Plus, these drivers aren't as bad as they used to be back in the day.
    This is great info - I don't have Nahimic stuff, just the full generic FF00, but still, I'm like you - I really, really want (quasi-need) my EQ settings enabled.

    But with your experience, if I ever do get an external device like that, I'll now have a post I can come to directly to read nad help me work my way through my configuration. Thanks!

    If anyone could give me a detailed description of 8652, overall sound... I would appreciate it, thanks.
    Will update asap.
    I can't at least until tomorrow, and more likely after the weekend - got plans and all....

    It sounds a lot like build 8648 but with an extended bass and a nice clean top end. A keeper for me
    Thanks....

    if that's the case, I'm avoiding it - I desire (again, quasi-need) clarity above all.

    So is it just me that hears the static/crackle at 20-22 secs and 30-31, 1:20-1:30 etc? or maybe it's supposed to be there ?

    The Dire Straits one and Rag&bone's Human and several others I use sound fine.....

    Read this thread:

    Direct links to 3 posts that help explain it all:

    Plus, I know it was talked about in this thread as well, but this thread is rather long....

    I asked this a while back but have not found a solution yet so forgive me for trying again, but...

    With an MSI B450 Gaming Plus board that uses Nahimic...Is there any way to install the newer HDA drivers WITHOUT Nahimic and still have the Enhancements Tab/Effects where EQ, and Loudness Equalization are found? With 6.0.1.8228 all that works, but with the newer ones (FF00) the tab is missing completely and the Realtek CP under Effects just has a "Launch Nahimic" link. I do not want anything to do with Nahimic, but need the Loudness EQ.

    6.0.1.8228 = good


    6.0.1.8612+ = nope
