Is Windows 8 Preview Audio better / louder than Windows 7?

Hi all

For some of the computers, other than Linux, running Windows XP would have an overall louder volume. Is Windows 8 Preview audio better compared to 7 / Vista or is it the same soft volume?

Cheers :smileyvery-happy:

For me, with a Thinkpad E520, the volume seems to be louder.

Re: Is Windows 8 Preview Audio better / louder than Windows 7?

Hi Peter,

 

I install the Windows 8 CP and Dolby is not working! Do you have any solution for that?
