Realtek HD Audio integrated problems with vocal/bass balance

Hello

I have this ready built office pc "Dell Precision T1600", quite nice setup, but i have a problem with the sounds, ive encountered this problem years ago with the same integrated Realtek HD Audio device.

For awile now it has annoyed me alot that the sound levels keep changing from bass, say a song where you got strong vocals before the bass kicks in, the vocals are loud and clear, but when the bass starts kicking, the vocals are supressed for atleast -50% volume, when the bass eases up, vocals and other background sound volume rises again.

What i have tried:
Remove/reinstall drivers, adjust the bass volume control on the subwoofer, change speakers, try the same speakers on another pc, try the speakers on my mobile phone, fiddled with all kinds of settings ive found on windows and realtek hd control (returned them back to normal).

It works great on other pcs with a different sound card, and the sound was actually best on my mobile phone.

My solution is to buy a new good sound card, but meanwhile it would be nice to just get it working better. This pc only has plugin holes for 1 sound and 1 mic cables, might be the problem, but it doesnt explain how it works on a laptop with the same holes.

The Precision line is designed to be a business workstation. But, it should sill function properly.

Whether the Realtek hardware is the problem or something else?

Realtek just issued R2.78 drivers. I would give them a try and see how they work. ONLY use the Windows Media Player and on a known good song file. Do not have other media programs running or be on line. Just the basic computer to see how it works.

www.realtek.com Download from the Taiwan site, NOT the Global site.

Yeah ifs an office pc, I got it almost free so was a good change, not more ideas here than faulty device, my engineer friend said it might be somehow weakened I can't remember, cant even understand most of he's explanations.

Does the Taiwan link offer a different driver somehow? I installed that version and no difference, I've tried it with multiple songs on media player, even played straight from a cd, songs with low bass I don't really notice a difference, but any dance, techno, hardstyle, rap, basically anything with medium or higher bass the difference is clear. It'll be a month till I can order a sound card, looked up an Asus one for 39,90 I hear its a good one.

Wish I had any independent sound card to just see if changing helps, but I've always just used the integrated ones cause they've worked well enough.

Been trying all sorts of google searches for this problem, but it seems it's not a common problem, usually I find good answers quickly.

When I and several others downloaded the new R2.78 yesterday the Global link still had the older R2.77 driver. The Taiwan link had the new R2.78. They may have fixed the problem but I suggested the Taiwan link as it has the R2.78 driver.

I have a recording studio (Sonar) so I'm into audio. Try the various sound Equalizer options in the Realtek HD Audio Manager and see if they help.
