  1. msi GT70 2OC Sound Blaster Cinema & Realtek audio drivers incompatibility after Windows 10...


    I have a GT70 2OC from 2012/2013. After Windows 10 upgrade, I noticed crackling in the sound.


    I realized that if I uninstall the Realtek drivers distributed by msi only until Win8.1 and use the generic Microsoft audio driver, the crackling goes away but then Sound Blaster Cinema V1.00.04 tells me that the current audio device is not supported. The audio experience without SB Cinema is inadequate, because the full potential of the speakers cannot be unleashed and the max volume is very low.


    So right now I need to choose between full and loud sound with intermittent crackling, or no crackling but consistently quiet and underwhelming sound.


    Does anyone know a workaround for achieving the proper audio experience on a GT70 2OC running Windows 10? I'm pretty sure Nahimic drivers won't work because those were released way after this laptop's generation.


    I'm aware of this related thread, but there doesn't appear to be a solution: https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/all/sound-blaster-cinema-windows-10-upgrade/d28bb689-65f6-457b-85d5-3c18f1dd47f7?page=2

  2. MSI Integrates Creative SoundBlaster Cinema Audio Technology into Select Motherboards

    Sound Blaster Cinema does not actually produce virtual surround sound?

    So I just got an msi GT70 2OC laptop which came with Sound Blaster Cinema pre-installed. Can somebody tell me why it is that when I'm gaming or listening to surround-sound capable files with a stereo headset, I don't hear surround sound? I thought Sound Blaster Cinema was supposed to supplement the Realtek soundcard in processing the audio so as to produce virtual surround sound that can be heard on a stereo headset?
