have to go back to old driver. the mic is not working under new driver.

 

Dell has just posted a v6.0.1.8642 A05 driver [UAD/UWP] for Precision 5530 & XPS 9570 yesterday (Lsudlow should not use this on his xps 9560 cuz it's a UAD driver)

Edit 3/22: Lsudlow should use this v6.0.1.8622 A14 HDA driver from Dell instead (released 3/20/2019)

Thank you for the clarification .For some reason, Dolby DAX3 works with both UAD and HDA drivers. I installed them higher and scored on UAD.

 
 

 

ok.  I have recently stopped using UAD drivers for nearly all of my older PCs using Realtek audio and have reverted back to using HDA drivers.  the only PC I have that will use Realtek UAD drivers is the custom built one with the Gigabyte GA-78LMT-USB3 R2 board which handles UAD drivers effectively and has a compatible hardware device id in UAD.  all my other computers are better suited with the legacy HDA drivers

Hi, I have a serious question and was hoping you could help me. I have been using the realtek drivers for my mobo with built in sound card. Would I be better off using an external card?  Say like one from creative labs? Or is my onboard sound good enough??

I think the onboard Realtek audio device is fine.  I would be more concerned with the speaker sound system that is connected to your mobo; quality of speakers is also important; hooking up powered speakers (ones with hardware volume control on the speakers themselves and have a separate power cord or using usb powered speakers like the Dell AX210 usb powered speakers, those came with my family's Dell Inspiron 620 desktop PC) makes the realtek audio device sound very good

the only time I would consider buying an external sound card is when the onboard Realtek audio hardware stops working altogether (a symptom of this is when "Realtek High Definition Audio" device no longer appears in the "Sound, video and game controllers" section in Device Manager (devmgmt.msc) along with the corresponding "High Definition Audio Controller" device in the "System devices" section of Device Manager; I've seen this happen with an old HP computer using their proprietary M2N68-LA Narra2 mobo where the onboard Realtek ALC888S audio device no longer produces sound and it's Device no longer shows up in Device Manager - turns out that motherboard was faulty and was replaced with a M2N68-LA Narra3 board which had better working Realtek audio device).  OR when the onboard Realtek audio device on your mobo is missing certain ports (like SPDIF optical) or need advanced audio options like Dolby Digital Live or DTS Interactive 5.1 thru SPDIF (aka digital audio output) is when an external audio card may be required

Other than those stated above, keep on using the onboard Realtek audio

I have Logitech Z906 5.1 speaker system as my speakers. That's why I was asking about an external card for them.

the Logitech 5.1 speaker set is fine using onboard Realtek HD Audio; no need to get an external sound card unless you need advanced features like stereo mixing or need extra audio outputs (or if the onboard Realtek audio device stops working)

move along now, Raxon.  we're done here 🙂

unrelated note, Microsoft was extremely late in posting new Realtek audio drivers like 8633 & 8639 on the MS Update Catalog site (posted them either March 26 or 27)

https://www.catalog.update.microsoft.com/Search.aspx?q=6.0.1.8639

I decided to make an unofficial 8659 UAD "all OEM" driver repack since realtek seems to no longer make new full "generic" uad driver packs anymore (nothing newer than 8614)

Hi, guys, a big question, what is the difference between the different FFxx versions???

I have been using the FF00 version for ages on my PC and I decided to try the FF03 variant (My mobo is MSI) and I didn't notice any difference whatsoever. no new control panel applets, no new effects, nothing.

I  tried the other variants earlier this year and i had some problems. I had high dpc latencies or even much more crystal sound with the loss of system stability. I dont recommend you doing it. And i guess one of them were really out of the combability chart so it gave me bluescreens. 00 is generic and other variants are for those specific soundcard  integrations as these guys said to me.

So then, how does one know which version to use????

What exactly are fmapo, nahimic, etc??? Just software enhancers or do they require some kind of hardware support??? (just just like you need a card with vulkan support in order to be able to use the vulkan API, for example)

that's right jvidal.  FMAPO, Nahimic, Maxxaudio, Creative etc. are some audio enhancers - but only certain few Realtek audio chipsets actually use them and not all Realtek audio chipsets can support them.

FF01 (FMAPO) - used mostly on Lenovo / NEC based machines with Realtek audio

FF03 (Nahimic) - used mostly on ASUS ROG (republic of gamers) laptops & motherboards and MSI gaming laptops & boards with Nahimic audio [ex. MSI Z170a Gaming M5/M7 and newer have Nahimic integration]

FF06 (Maxxaudio) - used on certain Dell Inspiron, XPS, Latitude, Precision, Optiplex machines made this decade (2010-2019) - also used on older ASUS laptops and Fujitsu brand computers

FF10 (Creative) - used on certain gaming boards & laptops; older Clevo gaming laptops use them; also found on Gigabyte brand gaming boards

 

by the way, check out this thread from Ten forums on determining the Realtek HDA driver needed for your Realtek audio device (very helpful)

 

edit 4/17: version 6.0.1.8668 UAD WHQL DTS from ASRock (posted 4/16/2019)

Apologies if this has ended up in the wrong section

Have got a realtek soundcard with Intel SST (Win 10 1809)

Uninstalled previous driver via DDU

Now i have installed ver 8683.1 driver (FF0C)  from Stasio link - Unzipped FF0C ver

Installed as i have done with the setup .exe icon

But after rebooting - Speaker icon has a red cross and there is no sound

So really what i am asking  - With these drivers that you  unzip  - FF00 FF0C etc etc

Is there a specific way of installing these HDA drivers ??

System i am trying to get updated has ver 6.0.1.8416 installed

Thanks for any assistance on this matter
