Dell Precision 5510 not outputting full audio spectrum

Jump to solution

Problem: Audio output is not using the full spectrum. Audio sounds "boomy". Dell Audio missing many controls. Tested the output against a pink noise reference (see image) so you can see that the Dell audio is not outputting a flat signal (or even full audio sound).

Running all the latest Windows 10 Fall Creator's Update and audio drivers as of Dec.10, 2017.
Reinstalled audio drivers and rebooted several times. 
Dell SupportAssist is telling me I'm up to date.

The latest Realtek driver listed on the Dell downloads is 19 Oct 2017.   I would install that and see what you get.   I have a recording studio and would look for a flat response, however the audio in most PC's and especially laptops is not flat and intentionally compensated.  

PC audio, e.g. Realtek, is not used in serious recording studios for many reasons including latency, levels, etc.
