Windows 10 Equalizer?

Well I just tried the MSI Realtek HD Audio Driver that supposedly comes with my motherboard. That was the worst sounding thing I've ever heard, went back to the Windows Basic HD Audio Driver. One good thing came out of all this though, now Windows let's me adjust the bass boost amount & frequency that effect does. Although I've found leaving it at default is best, otherwise it sounds muddy or tinny.

I don't know how it took me until now to realize it but, is there really not a built in equalizer in Windows 10 Home 64-bit that'll apply to YouTube & such? I know there's one inside Windows Media Player but I never use that, always streaming mostly rock, metal & some rap from YouTube. What third-party equalizers do y'all recommend that at least have presets & will apply to browser sounds?

 

Thanks in advance cause I might fall asleep soon.

Monitor Poll |

i7 3770k @ 1.3v 4.2GHz | 3x8GB CAS9 1333MHz | GTX 760 | ASUS P8Z77-V LE | 6TB WD Gold (128MB Cache, 2017)

Samsung 850 EVO 240 GB 

 

 

Legacy:

 

Spoiler

pc -> preamp -> splitter -> my 'crossover' (equalizer set to +12db on 35-200hz, twice since its a stereo one and im using it as mono), my amp

'crossover' -> amp (cheapo ebay board) -> subwoofer

Equalizer: Pioneer SG-60

eBay amp: Generic 100w with terrible traits 

 

PC -> 3.5mm to RCA -> L = Speaker Set3, R = Pre Amp -> Amp -> Speaker Set1/2

Speaker Set3 = Subwoofer (Altec Lansing VS4121 subwoofer, the amp is using the built in amp with that sub)

Speaker Set1 = 'Tweeters' (2x Panasonic SB-FS900 Surround Speakers)

Speaker Set2 = 'Mid Ranged' (Center speaker from Panasonic SB-FS900, Generic 'JS Hi-Fi Speakers'

Total: 1 subwoofer, 2 midranged, 2 tweeters

Pre Amp: Onkyo P-308

Amp: Onkyo M-508

Speaker Set2 is set to -5db using my Amp, quieter because I don't like my mids to be as loud as my highs/lows

 no more 'no buzz', it's hearable with the subwoofer. 

 

 

 

 

138 is a good number.

You expected a easter egg? No.
