Intel SST Bus Drivers and Intel SST Multimedia Controller Driver Archive from Dell or Lenovo please include in your Driver Pack. Thanks You FeratherI dont have an Intel to write and test the Intel variant, the only thing I can do is send you a pack that will add DTS:X to pre-existing drivers, although you need enter settings manually.
I have not fully tested the package, and don't really have time at the moment to write an install guide. In short you install it then add effects to the device.
Once installed you need to add the DTS SFX, MFX, EFX to your devices 'composite' effect lines. No guide included, as mentioned.
Okay I see that the Alternative is for ALCs that don't work well. Is there a list of known ALC that should use Alternative or is more of trail and error?Hi Everyone! New here I'm trying to do the install. When I double click on the installer ... I get prompted for Main Driver or Alternative? [M/A]
I'm not sure which to select. I'm W10 21H1 My Audio chipset if I understand correctly is S1220A (Link to my motherboards spec page)
Thanks I'll continue to skim the forum and see if I can find the answer.
Okay thanks. I selected Main, but following the instructions in POST 1, I didn't get prompted to restart WindowsBit of trial and error, some chips (and sometimes Windows) have bugs, I suggest main first, check SPDIF playback in sound unbound, if it plays you're good to go.
Else your chip (or Windows) does not like the settings, you should then use the alternative, it will make SPDIF more generic, but should work.
DTS DCH 6.0.9172.1 (Signed, Rebuilt)
Added an alternative inf, for ALC's that don't work well with programmed SPDIF and HDMI interface associations (some chips have bugs, and-or issues).
Enabled mode specific preset equalizers, changing modes with ultra is more noticeable, updated the configuration properties.
If you prefer another driver version, the Ferather preset, DTS presets and updater can be found here.
Here is a much cleaner way to install-update the drivers, right click uninstall in 'device manager', tick 'delete driver', pnputil to remove the extension (see post 1).
In 'device manager' again, in 'system devices' disable 'High Definition Audio Controller', I have two and its the first one, restart, install, enable.

This file what use? In a Inf file?Unfortunately I am not able to edit that post, I will contact an admin and get something sorted. I apologize.
So here is the summary version of the pop we all get with abrupt stop or starts of audio.
Audio [with pop] --> Audio rendering device --> Speakers [with pop].
What we need is for Windows to manage audio better before it reaches the device.
Alternatively, an SFX, MFX or EFX that specifically addresses the pop.
I have attached a bonus list of SSTPPCfg, as seen in 6.0.9172.1 (if you are interested).
If you have any issues with speakers or headphones, please post.
The ';;8' comment is an edit, it suppresses pop in some cases.
