    UPDATE: 11/21/2010

    after further searching the web on ways to increase sound quality of laptop,
    i came across this very interesting article about Asus G73JH creative software
    http://forum.notebookreview.com/asus-gaming-notebook-forum/519478-creative-x-fi-mb-your-g73-realtek-hd-2-48-a.html

    i follow the steps to install it but sadly lots of my programs are crashing because of the modded driver

    i read further and i try the suggest method of other member to use official Realtek 2.52 but unfortunately the X-FI MB didn't recognize the driver so it refused to even install

    then i found this very interesting post made by DarknessKnight
    http://forum.notebookreview.com/6799772-post97.html

    to my surprise it REALLY DID WORK:eek: :eek: :eek:

    and on top of that i never had a single crash

    i can now use bass boost, crystalizer, effects, alchemy, svm, etc without a problem

    also it has a bonus, its got EAX support for up to 4.0 so older games will sound much better

    those drivers in the link are realtek r2.52
    we are now on realtek r2.54 which came out on 5 nov 2010, which i have loaded on my acer 8930
    there looks to be nothing extra added to them by dell, they are just standard realtek drivers that you can get off the realtek website
    which is were i get them from
    i really like the audio from the 8930, it has 4 speakers and a sub inside and i havent heard a better sounding laptop

    I have a feeling that laptop has really good speakers, which is probably why it sounds good.

    First of all +rep!!!! thank you mate that driver owns it improved my sound quality heck a lot especially with the 5.1 speaker emulation on .... impressive

    & for those who say it is the same as realtek drivers .... I am sorry it is not because if you check the installed driver files you will see a gazillion of the files which aren't in the original realtek driver for example:

    MaxxAudioAPO.dll
    MaxxAudioAPO20.dll
    MaxxAudioAPO30.dll
    MaxxAudioEQ.dll
    MaxxAudioRealtek.dll
    MaxxAudioRealtek2.dll
    MaxxVolumeSDAPO.dll

    so it is not the same ... it doesn't even sound the same

    not so mate
    i have just checked my realtek drivers i downloaded off the realtek site and they have all the files you have listed

    maybe you and the op were using an older driver that didn't have those extra files and thats why you hear a difference
    but for us guys that keep there drivers upto date there was not difference in sound quality
    but as said those drivers he listed in the first post are just the standard r2.52 realtek driver you can get off the realtek site
    i don't know when realtek added those extra files to the drivers but i have just checked r2.52/r2.53 and the latest r2.54 and all contain the maxxaudio files
