向所有希望在 PC 上获得更好的音频体验但又不想在物理升级上花费太多的声音爱好者致敬。
我向您介绍 AAF DCH Optimus Sound:

在此处下载和更新:

启用 Realtek USB 音频支持

最新 HDAUDIO 驱动程序版本:6.0.9360.1
最新 USB 驱动程序版本:6.3.9600.2311

在安装此修改后的驱动程序之前,请务必从以前的 Realtek 音频驱动程序中删除任何和所有残留物,或者即使我的以前版本的模块中存在残留物,如果它们仍然存在的话。为此,您将需要DriverStoreExplorer (by @lostindark)。在“声音、视频和游戏控制器”、“扩展”中删除所有“Provider”为“Realtek”、“Dolby”、“DTS”、“Creative”、“A-Volute”、“AAF Optimus”等的驱动程序、“软件组件”和“音频处理对象”设备类别。

Good day guys,

I have an issues trying to set up 5.1 Logitech Z906 with my Realtek on motherboard Asus ROG Strix Z690-F connected via S/PDIF (Windows 10, 64bit).

I really tried everything, uninstalled every possible drivers, restarting, installing only basic drivers.
There is still no option for 5.1 channels. Only 2 channels.

Is there somebody who could advise me, what could be wrong? Thanks everybody!

Hi everyone,

Can someone please guide me on how to set up my audio? I'm a bit lost with all the options.
I have APO installed with specific EQ for my headphones and speakers.

My motherboard sound card is: Realtek ALC1220
Headphones are connected to ifi Zen DAC v2. The DAC is connected via USB to the PC.
Speakers are directly connected to PC.

I followed the installation guide. What's not working:
  1. Realtek Audio Console
  2. DTS:X Ultra is not working with Headphones/ifi Zen DAC. It does work with speakers, however.

The main uses are Music and Gaming. For gaming, I'd like to have the best possible 7.1 emulations. Is it possible?

Appreciate your help.

Hi @AAF Optimus ,

Unfortunately, the problem with the Realtek Audio Console still remains and there is no soud. I've tried every combination, nothing works.

I'm convinced it has something to do with the 5.1 audio feature, because the May 28th driver works and the Realtek Audio Console with the speaker fill option is available. Something changed with the later updates, I'm guessing you probably remember what changed exactly. Whatever it is, please change it back! :D

Thanks!

Do you have any problems with not being able to adjust the volume? I installed the latest AAF and found that there is no way to adjust the volume.

Hi there. Excellent drivers @AAF Optimus , congratulations. At last I found some drivers that are easy to install and that (FINALLY), will apply the sound on my SPDIF. I just have a little thing to ask you, is there any way to have the Dolby ProLogic, it is to hear the music also in the rear speakers of my Home Cinema. Let's see, my Home-cinema model has its own "dolby prologic" to simulate stereo sources at 5.1, but with these drivers the sound simulated in the rear speakers is not the best.

And another little thing, is it possible to modify something so that the subwoofer output doesn't sound so amplified? hahaha, it's amazing how boosted it is. All this talking about playing music, for movies with its Native DTS/Dolby Digital (I play through passthrough), it is PERFECT, but for music I would like to be able to solve those 2 little things, that I would like to have Pro-Logic and be able to lower a little the power of the Subwoofer, although the latter is not paramount, the fact of being able to have Pro-Logic while listening to music on the 5 speakers makes the Subwoofer sound so loud.

Thank you very much

Well after a while I try your update again. AAFOptimusDCHAudioPack-10.6.2311.9360 it seemed to me that everything worked very well but, in the headphones the bass was lost, I remember that this had already been solved, what happened? :confused::confused: The version I use is AAFOptimusDCHAudioPack-10.0.2311.9336 from which I have problems with the dolby atmos program but the headphones sound very good, but from the version AAFOptimusDCHAudioPack-10.0.2311.9338 so the last one, the dolby atmos program works very well but now the headphones lost bass. any solution? :(

NEW DCH DRIVERS RELEASED IN MEDIAFIRE
HD AUDIO DRIVER VERSION UPDATED TO 6.0.9360.1

MORE DETAILS IN 1st PAGE

ATTENTION: You will need to uninstall the currently installed version before continuing with this installation. A condition has been imposed for this due to problems reported by some users.

ATTENTION: Before installing this modified driver, be sure to remove any and all residues from previous Realtek audio drivers or even if there are residues from previous versions of my mods, if they persist. For this you will need the DriverStoreExplorer (by @lostindark). Remove any drivers whose vendor is "Realtek", "Dolby", "DTS", "Creative", "AAF Optimus", etc in the Sound, Video and Game Controllers, Extensions, Software Components and Audio Processing Objects categories.

Those who want only Realtek material, just choose the panel option (HDA or UAD) and deselect the rest.
Don't forget to go to the "Changes" button to check the changes of the latest version. :toast:

I installed the latest version of the driver, SB 2 does not have your multi-channel sound effects? Somehow, how did you do it?

it is an older chip than mine, probably from a laptop, maybe for that reason it is not compatible with 5.1 or 7.1 or digital output. on my laptop, which does not support multichannel, I have installed Boom 3d is as close as I can get to having surround sound.

My sound card chip is ALC 298 Realtek, only dual channel stereo; If you have your latest driver installed, can you soft-unpack stereo obfuscating (5.1 or 7.1) sound?

it is an older chip than mine, probably from a laptop, maybe for that reason it is not compatible with 5.1 or 7.1 or digital output. on my laptop, which does not support multichannel, I have installed Boom 3d is as close as I can get to having surround sound.
Sound card chip ALC 298 Realtek, only double channel stereo; This is the onboard sound card on my Dell XPS 15 9560 laptop; My system is the latest version of Win 10 Professional edition. Do you have the latest version of Boom 3D that you can use to share? The cracked one. We have the money to buy the real one. Thanks for your reply.

Hello Alan, how are you?
Look, since 2 versions ago my Dolby Atmos audio is sounding bass saturated. I solved it 3 versions ago by installing Dolby Atmos for System Speaker. I have a stereo system. Now Dolby Atmos for System Speaker sounds bass saturated, and Dolby Atmos sounds bass saturated too, and I have to change the audio output to Headphones, but it is not a good solution because it lowers the volume. What's wrong? Sometimes your updates break my audio.

How do you enable DD 5.1 with the tweak tool again?

I had it in a github issue, but github is gone -.-

Its always a hit and miss when updating / reinstalling on whether 5.1 will be available to select in Windows sound options or not. :(

EDIT:
Ok, I dont get it xD

I had maybe 1 year older version before updating to latest one now.

Using SPDIF

Latest HDAUDIO Driver Version: 6.0.9360.1
Latest USB Driver Version: 6.3.9600.2311


Uninstalled old version and cleaned with DriverStoreExplorer
Installed Patched DD5.1/DTS
No software
DD5.1 and DTS not showing in windows sound
-
Uninstalled and cleaned with DriverStoreExplorer
Installed Only DD5.1
No software
DD5.1 and DTS not showing in windows sound
-
Uninstalled and cleaned with DriverStoreExplorer
Installed Patched DD5.1/DTS
No software
Both DD5.1 and DTS suddenly shows up in windows sound (I never managed to get both show up)

Thats exactly what I mean with hit or miss :D

But when selected, "Format not supported by device"

I guess few more times? :D

EDIT2:
Yeah, reinstalled few more times.
Last install I did something different which I maybe should have done before.
After AAF uninstall and reboot, I also uninstalled microsoft default drivers in Driver Manager instead of anything with driverstore.
And installed AAF and changed to DD5.1 before reboot and DD5.1 worked. Rebooted and it still worked.

Solved for me then :p

Hi @AAF Optimus ,

unfortunately the problem with the Realtek Audio Console persists even with the USB driver update and there is no sound. Had to revert back to the May 28th drivers.

Thank you for all your effort! :)

Hello Alan @AAF Optimus , how are you?
I have a problem of saturated sound since several versions ago and sorry, even my device sounds bad.
I think the one causing the problem is the Realtek control panel, which activates the equalizer and has other effects, even if it is untouched I think it interferes. In your previous versions it was not possible to access the Realtek equalizer if I had only dolby atmos installed and Dolby sounded perfect. Now Dolby Atmos sounds saturated, not exaggerated but it is noticeable if I turn up the volume. What do you think this is due to? Now it sounds better without any audio mod. What happened here?
I hope you understand the problem Alan. I wish you the best from Argentina. My respects and good luck
