Which is better? I had bad experiences with Realtek on an Hp Dv6500t. The sound always would stutter and skip, and had low volume even with latest drivers and a fresh clean install of Vista. I later found out it was the sound card.
Ordered a new HDX16t and wanted to know if it comes with IDT sound as I've seen at Best Buy and is this sound card good. Is it LOUD and clear through headphones?

On which laptop are you referring to? The DV6500t or the HDX16t? I dont have the HDX 16t YET? But when I had the DV6500t I had constant stuttering and skipping with the Realtek sound card plus low volume, I asked the original question in hoping that IDT is better and that IDT sound is on the HDX 16t. So far I have learned they use them both but it was with the dv6500t's hardware plus Realtek that caused the stutter/skip/low volume.

It sounds **bleep** on my computer, for some odd reason it's surround sound in only like a 15-20* angle infront of me (Mentally) It sounds much better when you turn it off, but you lose the nice bass, sadly.

Keep it off. Increase bass in tone controls. Also, the audio program to play your audio makes a difference. I recommend using Media Player Classic with AC3Filter; it sounds best from everything I've tried. You can use it with Windows Media Player as well if you can get it to work. There's also a way to integrate it with Winamp but with the first option it's the easiest. It's what I prefer for playback of pretty much everything anyway when combined with the CCCP codec pack.
