Realtek High Definition Audio (Speakers/Headphones) volume level very low with Windows 10 build 10074

I can see from the forum that there has been a lot of discussion regarding Realtek Audio problems, but it is hard to get a clear idea of what the current situation is expected to be with build 10074.  Anyway, using a fresh installation of build 10074 on a Dell Studio XPS 435, speaker sound volume is very low, even with everything set to 100% maximum. Default Playback device is displayed as "Speakers/Headphones. Realtek High Definition Audio". Any ideas?

I had no sound to on a 5.1 surround system. After the driver update had no sound manager installed and tried other drivers but win 10 would not install the sound manager that I need to set up 5.1 surround sound. The way I fixed it was I went into the drivers file Vista64 I right click on RAVCpl64 and ran it as admin. It installed the sound manager and put it back in the control panel again. Now I have my sound again. With out the sound manger my 5.1 will not work. This is a hd realtek sound controller.
