After updating my Windows 10 64bit Home Edition with the anniversary update I realized that the sound quality declined slightly. The difference is not too big but as a musician I feel it clearly.
I am focusing on headphone usage, switching to built-in speakers the difference is less sensible.
The sound level decreased significantly, I had to raise the volume bar from 25% to 40-50% to have the same volume.
Also the overall quality, richness , stereophonic effect, reverberation is decreased by 20-30%.
The sound became a little bit blunt compared to the state before updating the system.
I removed/deleted the software/driver completely and tried all versions of available drivers published on HP support page related to my notebook, the result is the same.
Realtek HD Audio Driver versions which I tried:
My system: HP Pavilion 15t M7H65AV L9S44, Realtek HD Audio ALC290 with B&O Play.
Any comments are welcome!

The No Sound from Speakers (Windows 10) is not relevant since I have sound as I had before but I have some problem with its quality.
However I checked the link you have provided and the system is up to date and running fine. Also I ran the diagnostic utilities provided by HP with good results.
I am also waiting for other users with similar system configuration to assure me or refute that this is a real problem.
