    SOUND settings, my sound settings on G75

    OK. Let's see how this might help some of you to understand what I've done.

    First at this point I am using VIA 10600a drivers. This is important. I have them from here.


    Second, the player migh play an important part so I'll put it as well. I am an old user of KMPlayer and after the team dropped the suport on it to develop PotPlayer, I have that. You can get PotPlayer from here. Do not download the DirectX or whatever it might complain about.

    PotPlayer will ask you for a speaker setting. You can choose whatever you want, it can be changed later.





    There is also a LFE setting that will give you a bit more low freq.

    If other settings are checked in this section, make them to be like mine or test your own to suit your needs.

    I find PotPlayer to be a very nice program for music and movies. It has internal codecs, uses full GPU power when needed, is low on system resources, has a ton of options, it's very stable. The bad part with the x64 version is that it will minize to tray everytime.

    The VIA Deck settings:

    Volume control - I set Bass Filter to 50.



    Speaker setting



    Default format - programs might use different settings, so I didn't change a thing here.



    Sound Equalizer - the part you all want.



    Here are the values for them:

    60 = +5 - there is hardly any improvement on low freq. with this any higher.
    170 = +15 - Sub and speakers both are affected by this.
    310 = +5 - higher value will not help sound quality much.
    600 = 0
    1k = -10 - Sub and speakers both are affected by this, for a Sub a range 'till 1k is quite a lot.
    3k = 0
    6k = +10
    12k = + 15 - Above 12k sound quality on speakers will be poor.
    14k = 0
    16k = 0

    If you have questions, please ask.

    I did not change anything in Windows.

    This is the best system can offer right now. My player setting gives a bit more bass.

    You can try to raise 60 and mainly 310 more, but I've done lot's of testing with all kinds of music, this sounds best for me as an overall EQ preset.

    I even went online to test how it would work on youtube since most of you listen to music from it.

    This is what I listen too so I have tried to cover as much as possible.

    It's a nice tune for headphones as well.

    I am a bit of an audiophile so for me EQ is the last option.

    Here there is no other way to make this sound better.

    To be honest, I did it as I've seen so many people asking for good settings and I've said maybe I can help. I've tested the problem and this was the best middle ground from my point of view. I know the sound is terrible out of the box. Maybe not everyone is as demanding as me, but I call it terrible.

    Don't worry about volume, I've tried to keep a good balance.
