I currently have a pretty old set of 4.1 speakers from Creative. They have served me well but it seems that I have damaged something which is making me consider a replacement finally.

Just wondering if anyone has a recommendation for the same. 2.1 should be good enough. I am considering not getting a subwoofer this time around because most of my usage is media consumption and not music listening. And my current speakers are giving me a lot of problem focusing on dialogues in movies and tv shows especially since whatever damaged I caused by letting them run at really high volume on very screeching music accidentally.

There is a possibility that some setting change might fix the issue I am facing. But I have literally tried everything. The problem started after Windows 10 2004 update. Though not sure if it is the reason for it. Have tried multiple drivers (latest from realtek website, latest on windows update) but nothing seems to have helped. dialogues are way too soft. background music is way too loud. it's insane to keep on changing volume while watching the video content because of this problem.

This video is a good example.

If I keep the volume high enough for the starting music to not get too loud... I just cannot hear the dialogs when the guys appear on screen.

Turns out I can only hear the guys when both YouTube and my system's volume is at full. But that's insanely loud for the music at the start of the video. Pretty fucked up.

@Sushubh you mentioned pi.
But i have a question why people buy pi's ? they are portable computer i get it but the performance is very low.
So I'm wondering what is a possible use case for anyone to have pi? Maybe personal DIY projects or running some Home Automation projects?

I use it for torrents and running a few scripts for which running a computer 24x7 makes no sense. Others have their own use. Pi-hole is a popular app for which a lot of people get Pi for their homes.

I probably got it initially to run reliance broadband auto login script. It used to log me out randomly so it was a massive annoyance. The script ensured the net worked 24x7 as long as there was no wiring or backend issue.

One use of Pi is as a router.

ISP Modem ==> Pi as Router ==> WiFi router in AP Mode

This takes care of a lot of issues like ad blocking, VPN for whole network, bandwidth management etc.

so the distorted sound problem has restarted in recent days. maybe my speakers are finally damaged. maybe it is another glitch from microsoft. but it is impossible to hear dialogs of television shows again.
