Very noooice, well done!
Thank you. I didn't want to touch the optical output because I like dtsi + ddl, they both work properly in 5.1 channel and the receiver recognizes both formats as well .. I put dtsx and dts digital entertainment only on the analog which is enough for me, the sound is good on headphones as well as speakers. Cheers :)

Fair enough, depending on how the dual APO is working, you should still be able to add all but the encoder in terms of DTS APO4.

Well done job. I was able to test other audio plugins on Windows 11 these days to see how it would work with the new OS and my conclusion is impressive, I didn't find any major problems and bugs and most of them work maybe a little better than on Windows 10, everything worked like butter..As for the double apo's you mentioned above I followed the trail to see if there were any conflicts between them or any errors in the work and I didn't find any errors, everything works perfectly. Maybe because I use them independently not at the same time. Thanks again for this fantastic work !!

So, this only works for Realtek, correct?

A CMedia card with DTS Connect, DTS Interactive, and DTS Neo:C thru Oxygen HD would be unable to use the DTS:X?

Good chance it wont work, I will have to get back to you on that one. If you want to try anyhow, make backups with FX config.

OK, thanks.

So, what advantage does DTS:X offer over DTS NEO and DTS Interactive that I am currently using; Digital coax connection to Z-5500?

Improved audio quality, digital audio processing, and spatial-3D effects, current standards. I'm using Z906, Toslink.
Persoanlly I dont use NeoPC, as its expand technology and not updated, I use E-APO to upmix.

The Interactive provided does however come with NeoPC, you will need extra settings.

Edit: Forgot to mention Z906 has 4.1 and 3D mode for stereo, better quality.

Forgot to post this, double click install, then when finished restart your computer, you can edit the .xml if you want.
I tuned it based on my AMD GPU and THX speakers, and to fix some issues with stereo.

Changed headphones game2 mode to the same spatial mode as internal and external.
Increased distortion prevention to the value of 8, up from 4.

Forgot to say the latest preset is included in the package, along with the latest DTS core.
If you are already using the package, you only need to install the update.

You only need to use the setup files 'again' if the devices driver is removed-updated.

DTS-Realtek APO combo settings are here, these replace the ones in 'Setup'.

Hello, i have a usb x-fi surround pro 5.1 v3 sound card. My windows 10 version is 21h1. In this version of windows 10 no drivers of creative website work with the sound card,not even one program when i install the unsupported drivers. Programs like creative entertainment console or creative audio control panel open with an error message that not supported audio device is available, as these programs stopped working when flash player stopped beeing supported on windows 10 . Only windows update finds a driver 10.0.19041.1202 from microsoft which makes the card work but as usual it doesnt support dolby digital live or dts interactive. Will this method work with my card or is it made only for realtek integraded sound cards. Thanks a lot. Merry christmas!

Did you have a chance to investigate this any further?

Thanks

@snaker1, I had issues when Windows dropped support for my X-Fi, I imagine this is some of the reason. You should start you own thread for this X-Fi issue, many people have it working.

@Arctucas, you should be able to get this package to work if you had a HDAUDIO device on the system, such as in the guide, else no, I am sorry.

The DTS:X (APO4) system has more features than the previous versions of DTS APO's (1, 2, 3), it no longer uses virtual, or expand, but instead spatial.
It also acts as a DSP, as well as an APO. The audio quality is far better than pervious APOs from DTS, mostly due to better technology.

The DTS:X Ultra system works on-with PCM, so even DTS Interactive is improved, without any additional hardware.

DTS Interactive with DTS X Ultra is current crême de la fap.
