Why is Realtek driver craping!

Because:

-sound is real bleary
-Eq work only on front speakers when is set to 5.1
-speaker fill is crap solution for upmixing stereo to 5.1,and realtek won't give better solution like Stereo to surround option like in creative console or asus xonar audio center...
-Room Corection work good only when is bass management and speaker fill turned off,and envoriments enabled..

Becaouse that,i buy Asus Xonar and don't have problems...

I could buy a asus xonar but going to wait and see. It's the price you pay when you're a early bird. Sound is good from speakers so I know it's w7 conflicting with something. And I also love a challenge!

Because ive got a laptop that is perfectly capable of loud, crisp sounds. If i had a pc i would definitely just buy a new sound card, im starting to now think that its always going to be quiet and average aslong as im on windows 7 which is a shame because i like everything else about it.

Yep, it's odd that that Windows 7 seems "quiet". I'm dual booting with XP and the same audio system sound great, high output, crystal clear sound.

Not sure what's going on or why there seems to be an audio limiter on Windows_7.

I agree. My results with sound on my Supermicro C2SBX board with Realtek ALC883 chip, running 2.40 under XP SP3 as well as Win7 Pro x64 are superb! I've never had any of the clicks, pops, or other audio anomalies reported by others. But then I also don't have 5.1/7.1 sound (I have "quadraphonic" sound set, for my Altec-Lansing 641 speaker system) and I also don't have microphone input.

What I actually most appreciate about Win7's new approach to audio is that each app has its own individual "master volume" slider in the Mixer, which is (a) independent of the overall Master volume slider for the system as a whole, and (b) almost always independent of volume controls on the apps themselves, which seem to be yet another "pre-amp" gain/level adjuster.

While this multi-layer volume handling is sometimes annoying (e.g. sometimes the app's volume control pushes the Mixer slider for that app, and sometimes it doesn't... depending on how the app was written to provide volume control), overall I think it's ABOUT TIME that the obvious differences in methods for controlling sound volume between apps were separated to be app-specific, instead of them all screwing with the one and only WAV slider which also affected System Sounds.

I think the new approach in Win7, of effectively individual WAV sliders for every app and also for System Sounds, is great.

I also like that the "Master Volume" slider in the Mixer adjusts all the other individual "WAV" sliders for each app up or down proportionally whenever the Master slider is moved. Keeps everything relative to each other in sync.

Just use the individual app WAV sliders in Mixer adjusted correctly, to keep each app's volume to your liking.

Yes, this is what I was referring to in my last post, sound is ok but the overall volume in Windows_7 is considerably lower than in XP, using the same hardware.

Want to see something interesting?

Open registry editor, and use this as a search string:

AudioProcessingObjects

Evidently Win-7 is briging in third party audio processing, I even see something (Maxx Audio) that's listed as a "Waves" product, that's fairly high end stuff.

I wonder if the lower overall volume is to give the system headroom for processing?
