    I had Surface Pro and the speaker quality not acceptable. It is too quiet. Can't even compare to my other cheaper windows 8 atom tablets. (Acer and Asus)

    Does anyone know if the speakers on SP2 are louder compare to the SP?
    Microsoft only mentioned added Dolby but it doesn't mean it is louder than SP.

    Anyone please confirm.

    Thanks,

    PS Sony Vaio Tap 11 has much better sound quality and it is slimmer

    MS added Dolby Digital Support and there is marked improvement in the speaker quality and loudness...

    On stored movies and such, vlc has a volume booster that does wonders to boost volume on pro. Sounds good imo. Plus depends on source where audio coming from whether loud or not. Bit through vlc, on pro 1, sounds loud and clear to me

    Not to mention, if you go into the speaker properties and tick the Loudness option, it raises the volume significantly.

    That's right. On some stuff it makes it too loud. But this is the quickest way to noticeably boost volume.

    This is awesome. Just after I bought my SP I took a plane flight and when I watched a movie with headphones I could barely hear it with the volume at max level. I had to push the ear buds in tight to make out most of the dialogue.

    Hi,

    Have you upgraded your SP to windows 10?
    I was amased by the loudness of the speaker output, I mean, consistently across sources (bbc iplayer, youtube, music players, etc.)
    I actually started a thread in the forum to identify any other who had this pleasant surprise.

    Good luck!
