Conexant SmartAudio HD drivers v8.65.21.52 for Windows 8.1 from Microsoft Update Catalog (posted Oct. 9, 2014):

32bit download

64bit download


I found out that this specific Conexant audio driver from Microsoft includes "Dolby Digital Plus" editions of the Dolby Home Theater V4 & Dolby Advanced Audio V2 MSI packages and not the "regular" editions of Home Theater V4 & Advanced Audio V2.


The differences between the normal HTv4 & AAv2 and the digital plus editions of HTv4 & AAv2 are pointed out in this Lenovo forum thread.





*sounded more louder and crisper.

*newer software (2013).


*no bass

*no function (like we can tune the equalizer).

* "Intelligent Equalizer" is less (just got 3).

*the "Custom Profile" that we can create is just got 1 or 2(forgot @@).



*louder bass

*can tune the equalizer likely.

*more "Intelligent Equalizer" (6)

*more "custom profile" (6)


*older software (2012)

*not louder sound


BTW, Conexant SmartAudio HD Version dated 10/9/2014 for Windows 7/8/8.1 is available from the Toshiba web site posted 11/20/2014.

This one from Toshiba has DTS Studio Sound support instead of Dolby AA/HT


Update 12/15: Another Conexant HD Audio driver package from Toshiba posted 12/06/2014.

Also version dated 10/14/2014 from ASUS - has Waves MaxxAudio support.
