Ok, I built a new computer last week, using a Gigabyte GA-MA69G-S3H motherboard with a Realtek ALC889A HD Audio integrated sound card, and running Win XP. To my great dismay I found out that there is simply no bass. Or, I guess it is there, but it is so thin that it's just laughable, for example if I'm watching a movie or a TV show and there's an explotion (or several explotions), all I get is a sound similar to hitting two bricks against each other, not like the rumble of an avalanche like I had before. I am using Beverdynamic DT770 headphones, so I know the problems does not lie there. Previous to this new computer I used Win 2000 with a Creative Soundblaster Live sound card. The problem is that I can't adjust the bass level on volume control -> advanced controls, because advanced controls is unavaliable. Now, with this sound card follows a manager called Realtek HD Audio Manager, so I checked to see if I could adjust the bass level there, but to no good. I am using the latest driver by the way. Also there is this annyoing background noise, almost like sitting in a tent, hearing the wind blowing outside. This is especially annoying in intros/outros of songs. The volume of that noice can be reduced but not removed, and I if do that, the songs lose some fullness. Any ideas?
