    Hi mokichu, I appreciate everything you do around here.

    I wanted to ask you what amplify level does and which one I should use for the best quality.

    Hi,

    When you plug (unplug then plug if already plugged) the jack 3.5 mm of a headphone, the automatic impedance detection will automatically choose the appropriate level of amplification for you (depending on the impedance of the headphone), but you can force it to Powerful or Extreme manually.

    On the other hand, when you use jack 3.5mm to connect audio active/powered equipment (like powered speakers), the automatic impedance detection does not distinguish between passive (like a headphone) and active equipment (like powered speakers) and therefore will wrongly try to detect the impedance audio active/powered equipment, and wrongly adjust the amplification level to Extreme while a audio active/powered equipment should not receive amplified audio stream (to avoid reducing the lifespan of your equipment and not to saturate the sound spectrum).

    So, in order to avoid reducing the lifespan of your equipment and not to saturate the sound spectrum, I advise all people who use jack 3.5mm to connect audio active/powered equipment (headsets jack 3.5 mm are not concerned because they are passive/not powered equipment) to set this parameter on Performance, whatever the result of the automatic impedance detection.

    I always thought those settings were headphones related but settings differently affect the decibels being delivered only to front left and right in my 5.1 Sony speakers. Also I believe I will have to look in my manual to see what the impedance for the system is. Never knew. I use my Apple Watch's noise app for determining what sound level each speaker is producing

    Hi Mokichu. No these are Sony SRS-D5100. I bought them back in 2006 and they are Sony's last analog 5.1 speakers for PCs. 14 years old and still kicking. I love Sony.

    Thanks for responding, so just to be sure I have everything connected right,

    I have my Sennheiser 58x connected at the rear port and it automatically set it to extreme and left like that
    I also have my sony ht-ct370 sound bar connected to the front port and it automatically got set to extreme and lowered it to performance like you said.

    Are both of these in the correct configuration?

    Yes like you said Mokichu, it set to Extreme as soon as I unplugged and re-plugged. I set it to Performance. (Actually they misspelled it in the app as "Performace", anyone noticed that? )) )

    MoKiChU, after I installed the new driver I saw that a Speaker configuration (Sonic Studio Virtual Mixer) appeared, did I install the wrong driver or is this something new? Because due to bugs in Sonic Studio I chose to use the Realtek UAD driver and control panel only, thank you.

    Is the first page of this thread always kept up-to-date with the latest driver release from MoKiChU? Or will I have to dig further into the thread based on release date?
