Also might want to download the latest audio driver from the motherboard maker, when we figure out the maker.

last time i updated my driver with realtek it messed it up and i didnt get any virtual sound. Should i do it anyways?

You MB comes with the Realtek ALC889A audio processor

  1. Realtek ALC889A codec
  2. High Definition Audio
  3. 2/4/5.1/7.1-channel
  4. Support for Dolby Home Theater
  5. Support for S/PDIF In/Out

 

This is a link to the gigabyte site with the latest audio drivers for your MB

http://www.gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=2887#dl

Might as well install these latest drivers, might give you more options for the audio control panel.

 

Also download the motherboard manual, it shows on the manual pages 87-92 how to use the audio control panel.

In the manual, it will show you where to enable DDL.

Is not "Astro gaming Mix-amp," the Astro Mix-amp.

Try unplugging the speakers, see what happens.

I'm concerned that your MixAmp is listed as a USB device. That shouldn't be the case at all. Is your MixAmp wired? The later models (post-2010) use USB for chat audio + power, if I'm not mistaken.

okay i got it to work. I didnt see DDL, but they sound better without the mixamp. that normal? My only option without the mixamp was Home Theater/ Dolby Headphone and Natural Bass.

music sounds better without it, borderlands 2 sounds the same with or without mixamp.

Im still trying to figure out how to turn on DDL.

This is just a guess, but I think your settings are still wrong.

If you download the manual for the motherboard, on pages 87 thru 92 is show how to enable Dolby Digital Live.

I have no idea if this is a good place to ask this, but how are the HD558's for games like red dead redemption and demons souls.(No I don't play online game's).

Also how bad is the sound leakage on them? I'm not interested in bringing the outside but I need to know if it's bad enough to annoy people 10 feet away or wake them up.
