Installed and working well for me, as usual. I don't hear any difference, but that's fine considering I run mine to a Yamaha RX-V375 receiver and custom homemade speakers (better than any commercial brand you can buy) via optical cable, and my onboard Realteks on both my last two main-boards have sounded as good as my Asus Xonar card anyway. I like to use the Realtek versions because they enable 'stereo mix' recording. I think the Realtek control panel is fine. I usually have no need to use it, but, it isn't bad at all. http://i.imgur.com/0hr0cCi.jpg

Why would u hear any difference while using digital connection ? u are always limited by the DAC and OPAMPS u are using, doesn't matter where it is, in your case in a Yamaha amp but not in your sound cards so u can now go and buy the most expensive sound card there is and u still wont find it any better via digital but u might get new feature or 2.

i run mine to an rca receiver (why i need a newer receiver with more sound abilty options lol). and i also built my own speakers 🙂 but something about these drivers did cause sound improvements. also was able to fine tune the default format. only had a few options to work with before between the 16 bit and 24 bit dvd or studio options before. now in these drivers more actually work and was able to up the bits and hz. rear speakers are definitely louder now. i had to really do a lot of tweeks to get decent sound out of them before.

I know, that's why I mentioned it. That said, I have tested out, but rarely use, my analog outputs on my Xonar DG vs the onboard Realtek ALC892 via decent headphones too, and if there was a difference it was not enough for me to bother keeping the Xonar installed considering the Realtek has a very handy 'loudness equalization' feature that the Xonar lacks. In short, on my Gigabyte board, the Realtek is a pretty good sound option and the drivers over the past several years have been just fine for me, this new set included. If I was running analog out instead, I would probably rethink that though. But in that case, I would probably be running some $40 Logitech computer amp/speakers too and it still would not matter much.

Should I install this over the latest, generic windows 10 drivers? I have never installed a proper Realtek driver.

For me the advantage is you get a new device under 'recording' called Stereo Mix, and the reason I like that is you can record "what you hear" and MS does not like that. For example you can play a youtube video and record the audio from it as it plays using software of your choice, like Goldwave or Audacity, etc. It adds "Connector Retasking" as well (note the green thing I was mousing over on the right side of the screenshot I posted). Since I don't use any actual analog speaker outs/computer speakers, I use that to change my analog front speaker out to headphone out which makes it pre-amped and louder for those times I am using headphones. Also depending on your Realtek chip and mainboard, my old Gigabyte GA-MA785GT-UD3H and Realtek ALC889A for example, you get dolby digital live encoding. EDIT: One more thing, this may be pointless overkill, but I remove the following auto-run thing from the registry (then make a shortcut to that exe for manual run of control panel) because I have found absolutely no reason for it to run at windows start and no harm in stopping it, but I keep a backup reg file of it just in case I ever do:
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run]
"RTHDVCPL"="\"C:\\Program Files\\Realtek\\Audio\\HDA\\RtkNGUI64.exe\" -s"

I mainly install the Realtek driver for the Stereo Mix recording option. There are also some Windows 10 store games that have distorted sound with the generic windows driver (ALC889 at least), for example Asphalt Xtreme. This is fixed by installing the Realtek driver.
