View Full Version : Split playback Devices on G752VS

So I can't split my front speakers from my headphones.
In realtek HD audio Manager, option to split them is missing in version 6.0.1.7945
I have tried to reinstall drivers multiple times.
Plugging Headphones just "redirects"/"merges" them with the Speakers.

Is there any Hardware limitation for this? I can find any software solution at the moment.

Any help will be appreciated!

Best regards,
Ivan Dankinov

Was this ever an option on the G752VS? Are you saying you were able to do this before the latest driver update? I'm not clear on what you're saying about the option being missing.

Nope I never tried it before on the G752VS :) ( On my older machine I have done this with older drivers from RealTek, with the old UI. )
Just not sure if this is possible on the G752VS and wanted to check if anyone else struggle with it.
I'm thinking of trying something like Virtual Audio Cable today :)

Unfortunately Microsoft ripped out the audio system and replaced it with an inferior one in 8.1 and 10. So realtek may be conforming to that with the new drivers. You could try searching the web for virtual audio on windows 10. Maybe people have found a way around it?

Unfortunately I think this is more a hardware limitation.
You can't separate the Integrated Speakers from anything connected to the audio jack ( or any jack - you can configure them ).
I was able to split the sound using Bluetooth speakers + Headphones
Had to do some "magic" -> Virtual Audio Cable, that records sounds from "Speaker" device ( integrated speakers and anything in the audio jack, are show as Speakers device in Sound menu in Control Panel ), Bluetooth was Default audio device, then using SAR or Audio Router or anything like that to select what program/app sound to go from where.
The last part with the Audio Router is only if the program/app doesn't have option to choose what Audio Playback Device to use.

If anyone stumbles upon something more useful or have any other idea i'w be happy to hear :)

Thanks again and Happy Holidays !
