ASUS G75VX-TS72 is awesome laptop, except for audio. Worst sounding speakers I have ever heard. Verified latest Realtek audio driver, no change. The subwoofer in my Dell XPS at least had some sound of bass, this has none, just shrill highs, no lows. I suppose when I hook up my Altec Lansings with Amp, it'll work ok, but it is intolerable to even listen to any music through these speakers. It's even difficult listening to my normal sound effects for windows squeak. I've been reading the all the posts here about audio problems, but not sure they are related to just bad sound/bad speakers. Had I listened to this before I purchased, I wouldn't have.
Is there anything one can do besides live with it? Very Very disappointed.
Thanks for any input
Tim

From the Asus product website

"The built-in subwoofer, complete with SonicMaster audio technology ensures a rich and powerful experience that will ward off challengers."

Somebody is going to hell for lying!!!!

SonicMaster audio technology? Where is that on my machine? And does Asus monitor these forums or not? I haven't even gotten a response from feedback regarding the poor sound.

It's Realtek.
