    "Finally! The right one!"

    April 4, 2013  |   By TreknologyNet

    Version: Realtek High Definition Audio Codec (Windows 2000/XP/2003) 2.70

    Pros

    The download was simple enough, and the installation proceeded without issue It installed the driver and the tray icon so that it can be configured properly. Unfortunately the MoBo in question has turned out to be dodgy, so I may not be re-using this driver.

    Cons

    Realtek Drivers only list themselves in Windows as AC'97 Media Controller, and there are so many of these with different numbers that it takes a huge amount of research to find the correct numbered driver. Fortunately, I hit it first time.

    "Hmmm...It's usablem, but it's NOT the best."

    December 12, 2012  |   By OxydeG27

    Version: Realtek High Definition Audio Codec (Windows 2000/XP/2003) 2.70

    Pros

    It's necessary for sound output if you don't have a sound driver already, plus it's free.

    Cons

    The developpers emoved features that were in the 97' Audio Codec.
    Which is sad because the HD codec for Vista/7/8 HAVE THE FEATURES...

    While the 2000/XP/2003 versions...

    do not have?

    I am not very happy.

    Summary

    They've cut out many of the features that the AC'97 Audio Codecs has, which is a shame... And as for the reason why I'm not using the AC'97 but this one, it's mainly because they've stopped providing firmware updates... So much for stability and security maintenance. That last update was like...*checks website* 2008/10/1... ...oh my god. The HQ Audio Codec has its last update this year (2012/6/22)...why, just why!?!

    I really enjoyed the equalizers, the virtualizer and the pitch changer though...I wish that they didn't removed them in this version.

    BTW I didn't compared the frequency output between the 97' and the HQ, because it is a hassle to install inbetween the drivers(unlike programs, you have to REBOOT and UNINSTALL)...If there is any noticeable degradation in sound quality, please tell. What I got from Wikipedia was that the HQ one had more channels thus making the sound quality better than the 97'... in theory. But is there any physical noticeable difference in the sound quality?

    "Best Sound Management System I have had, So far."

    March 10, 2012  |   By Quester55

    Version: Realtek High Definition Audio Codec (Windows 2000/XP/2003) 2.58

    Pros

    This program has All of the Bells & whistles With Easy to understand Settings. Have been using for over a week & just love the easy Settings. Even the Sound effects work better than most programs I've tried in the past.

    Cons

    None, So Far.

    Summary

    Would be willing to Purchase this Program, if the Price Fits my Budget.
    In fact, I'll be trying this program out on my 2 New builds this week. And will be telling my friends about it as well.
    Thank-You C/NET.
