I found this free download to be easy to read but also very thorough about how to set up your PC for audio. It is similar to the Black Viper guide but more wide-ranging and good at explanations.

Thanks Matt! Taking both my machines through this now, about half-way through....


This is the guide I use as well for when I first install Windows 10:

I knew all the tips here, but I thought this was the best-written collection of all I’ve seen over the decades. Since Windows 10, I really only worry about one tweak: setting power to always on (and all that entails),
