Anyway to make the sound louder?

I have it maxed at the settings and deleted Skype. I ran the same YouTube video on  a Nexus 7 side-by-side and it is about 25% louder. BTW, Nexus7 loaded all 4 videos I compared 3 times faster

Hi Danieleyassu,

The tablet is a lightweight device and not really designed as a powerhouse device. Most tablets are assumed to be a personal device and not really meant to be shared with lots of people. Therefore, it won't really be that loud as compared to a laptop or desktop PC, especially considering the ultra slim form factor of our tablets which, IMHO, also makes our devices look "sexy."

However, I find my sound to be sufficient on my Surface RT Tablet as long as I'm not in a noisy location. If I am, I simply use my earbuds or headphones. Even so, last night my two daughters watched/listened to several Dr. Seuss' books/apps on my tablet where it Auto Reads the story to them and they used the tablet's speakers to listen. Of course, at the time, it was quiet in the room (we had to turn off the radio).

There have been times when I wanted more output, maybe some background music at a dinner party, and I've used a 3rd party speaker with self-amplification (it is self-powered) which helped to fill the sound gap.

I hope this helps!
