    I really like the new interface. But please include Dolby Home Theatre and everyone will be happy. Without DHT the sound isn't that great. And the build in Surround in Sonic Studio is a joke.

    I believe this version is just targeting the new Sonic Studio software, although the fix for netflix is already available through another beta version, I'm not sure if this version included this fix. I'll find out from our audio team and let you know.

    DHT will not be available in future driver version and also includes most other Dolby features due to licensing restrictions.

    DDL was removed in earlier version because Windows 10 doesn't have support for it. If Microsoft decides to change this and in the future this feature is supported again then we'll add it back in our future drivers.

    Our goal is to create a new Sonic Studio version which will resemble as closely as possible to the previous Sonic Studio version, but this will take some time so I hope everyone can be patient with us as we work hard to achieve this goal.

    Thanks,

    Hey Bahz, how is the progress with the channel mismatch issue? We're still waiting for a fix, since 2012. =)

    Been fixed in the threshold 2 (1511) update.

    EDIT: Do you know if the team plans to make the virtual surround into real surround simulation in the sonic studio? By that i mean to make it fool windows into thinking it's outputting sound through a "real" 5.1/7.1 system instead of stereo? Because pretty much every game out there uses autodetection and doesn't let us the choice of audio output.

    wow so no Dolby home theater anymore?
    it is supposed sonic studio to deliver better sound and true 5.1 and not some virtual surround?

    This driver makes the Phoebus sound crappier than an onboard sound card, the only thing that keeps the card sound good is Dolby Home Theater and this driver removes DHT... not going to use this... it`s a big downgrade in sound.

    Agreed Dolby home theater and Dolby digital live is the stongest features that this card has!
    as an admin you should send the the team a message suggest them to work with this features since theres no problem due to licensing restrictions
    in windows 10 future insider builds..

    Huh, imho DHT makes the sound worse, not better.

    At least, when removing DHT give us something in Sonic Studio or as plugin to get similiar results as with DHT.

    Like said, the interface is good but there is really something missing. Also the profiles aren't that great. I don't see any reason why Reverb should be enabled by default.
