nice update! 5.1 working just great on JetAudio with this driver. All you have to do is: (you need to buy Plus VX to have these features)

Turn off - Realtek HD Speaker fill


* Turn on X-Surround (Default)
* Turn on X-bass (12+)
* Turn on BBE VIVA (58+)
* Turn off BBE Wide, Reverb

* go to preference> Sound> 32bit Output (high resolution), enable Dynamic Limiter & DRC (Dynamic Range control)
Sound>multichannel>enable multichannel sound, Change X-surround mode to normal surround (Wide Rear)

* Preference>File>Enable AGC to normalize volume while playback

* Preference>Advanced>Decoder>MPEG Audio Decoder>config> select new mp3 decoder - 64bit floating point decoder

Sound is better with these settings, I hope it works for you too.

Using version .6235, any reason at all to upgrade.

PS For winamp users , I recommend StereoTool a free addon.

Stereo Tool 6.00 - free Winamp plugin

Vista 32 bit
mic doesn't work anymore

I downloaded and installed successfully this R 2.57 driver as Realtek High Definition Update (not proposed yet by MS) and the old driver was removed also, but now my Skype does not connect and says "cannot access your soundcard", so the mic of the laptop (Acer Aspire) does not work. Positive is that the Stereo-mix works now. I use Vista H.P.+SP2. What to do?

Been noticing something in here...

Why let the new driver update unninstall old driver,
when you can do yourself manualy and get less chance for conflits?
