  1. After every Windows 10 install, my sound quality settings reset to 1 channel, 8 bit, 8000...


    I need help resolving this particular problem I've been having. As you can see from the title, whenever I install a new version of Windows 10, several of my Sound Recording settings revert to the lowest quality available including my mic. I'm on the Skip Ring of the Insider builds, but this has happened on the Fast Ring as well. Any idea what could be causing this issue? I do use VAC and Voicemeeter Banana for streams and recording audio for podcasts, but I wouldn't think that would matter at all. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

    :)

    Sound Quality


    One thing that sticks out from looking at your "My Computer" specs. You list "ONBOARD 6 CHANNEL (5.1) HIGH DEF AUDIO (AS STANDARD)" which suggests you do not have the correct sound hardware driver. Your motherboard has Realtek sound and the first step is to install the Realtek sound drivers. My ASUS also came with Sonic Studio 2 which is a sound enhancement package. Check the ASUS install disc to see if you have something similar.

    May not be a speaker problem.

    Sound Quality / Windows 10 Upgrade

    Hi J,

    To address this concern, we suggest that you follow these steps on how to troubleshoot sound issues after upgrading to Windows 10:

    • Right-click the sound icon in the taskbar located at the bottom right of the screen and select
      Playback Devices.
    • Select the current playback device in use and by default it should be the
      Speakers
      . Double-click on it to open its Properties window.
    • Got to Advanced tab and change the bit rate to either of the following: 24bit/44100 Hz or 24bit/192000Hz. Depending on the speaker configuration.
    If that won't work, follow these steps on how to scan for hardware changes:

    • Go to Start menu, search for Device Manager and click it.
    • Expand Sound and audio devices.
    • Right-click on the current sound driver and choose Uninstall.
    • Click on Scan for hardware changes and the updated driver will be automatically installed.

    If the issue still persists, we suggest that you download the latest sound card drivers for Windows 10 from your PC's manufacturer website.

    Let us know how it goes.

    Thank you.

    Good surround sound headset

    I know you say you're not that guy, but stepping into the $250+ range really brings a change in build quality that might have you never having to buy another set. Otherwise, getting 6 speakers with decent sound in a headset is hard, and that's what you are asking for, and I have no suggestions, but just a bump up the list. *Stick Out Tongue After every Windows 10 install, my sound quality settings reset to 1 channel, 8 bit, 8000... :p
