    Strix Z690-F Gaming WiFi - Audio delay of 2-3 seconds with BIOS 2004

    Hi All,

    I have a Strix Z690-F Gaming WiFi with a Creative Labs AE-5 Plus and I'm suffering an audio delay that makes watching videos pointless.

    The AE-5 is connected to a Samsung S60B sound bar via SPDIF optical - I gave up on the Realtek audio for exactly this reason.

    Prior to upgrading to version 2004, the setup worked fine but now it also shows an audio delay. Connecting to the S60B via Bluetooth works correctly with no audio delay. Yes, I know that I can just use BT but at some point, I'm looking to move to a 5.1 or a better system that should use the SPDIF output.

    Does anyone have any suggestions on how to address this? I've tried a complete reinstall, reloading BIOS defaults, etc, and can't find anything that works.

    OS is Windows 11 Pro 22H2.

    Thanks,

    TonyG

    This is what I hate about Windows (and I worked in the Windows division for 8 years) - This morning I blew everything away, reloaded BIOS defaults, enabled the settings I needed and started the Windows reinstall process using, as far as I can remember, the exact same process (Windows Update, always reboot, etc).

    Now the audio delay has gone away. Did a driver get updated overnight? Did Windows just stop being difficult? Who knows.

    Anyway, the machine is all good now.

    Hi tony,

    I have the ROG Strix Z690-F Gaming Wifi motherboard but instead of using the Realtek audio driver, I'm using the ROG Delta S Animate headset over usb with Armoury Crate.

    All is working well here too, good to hear your audio delay issue is solved.

    Thanks - Appreciate it - I moved to the AE-5 because I was just done with the crappy Realtek driver experience - Get great sound from it through the S60B.

    That's why restore points exist. They saved me so many times.
