How to Enable/Fix Realtek ALC 662 Audio Codec on macOS Sierra In this tutorial i'll show you how to.
This guide contains instructions on how to get audio working on a CoffeeLake/KabyLake/SkyLake hackintosh, aswell as older motherboard chipsets. This guide covers the new ALC1220 codec, as well as other codecs such as ALC1150, 892, 887, and the ASUS S1220A.

This guide uses the AppleALC method which is the easiest way to get audio working for beginners without tampering with the files of macOS and it’s the easiest way to debug if there is a problem. Other methods can be difficult to reverse if a mistake is made.

First of, thank you so much for this wonderful website of yours, it really helpt me a lot with setting up my very first Hackintosh.
I’ve used one of your guides for the entire installation and practically everthing works except for one pesky thing: onboard sound. So far I was able to identify which codec I am using and according to what I’m reading on this page it should be working right after install. Unfortunately, it does not. After inserting every ID applicable, not once did the internal audio out, line out, internal speakers, etc showed up in my output preferences. I’m using a GA-Z270-X Ultra Gaming motherboard with Realtek ALC1220. I hope either you, or someone else reading this, has come across this problem before and/if knows how to fix it.I must add: I’m still don’t fully understand every technical term. Hope to hear from you soon, in kind regards, Stefano.
Thanks for the guide – it worked great, I have all of the output/input options available but all I get through any of the ports is static. The strange thing is that when I adjust volume while playing music to test the quality of the static changes with my volume adjustments. Very strange!
I’ve tried all the suggestions, including codec commander and still just the list of outputs with static on every one. Would it make sense to try installing AppleALC and Lilu in my Extensions folder instead? Is it possible I fried my built-in audio at some point? How would I test that? Also I recently installed a Nvidia GTX Titan Card – could that somehow be interfering? Are there any know issues there?
