Oh, and no flash, please. Is it really too much...

The good thing about it is, it's really quiet, tiny (no monster heat sinks,) and relatively cool. I'd just experiment with a...
olander08, when I was getting some DPC latency spikes (nothing as drastic though) I started diagnosing the cause by killing processes, then going into Device Manager and disabling hardware one by one (don't disable your disk, video card or anything like that obviously; only things like LAN card etc.) You can also try updating the drivers for everything you have in your computer and see if you notice any difference.   In my case, what was causing the biggest spikes...

For music listening I switch to a different player. My recommendation would be that you try DS as output in foobar and see if you notice any difference. If you do, you can always switch back to ASIO when you...
Not necessarily. Whether ASIO takes exclusive hold of the card depends on sound card/drivers. Generally it's desirable for it to behave this way. It's possible to change it with WASAPI (although I haven't checked to see if and how it works.)   Does it have to be ASIO? I just switch to something a little less problematic when I'm using music as background for games.

Not necessarily in the actual headphones, physically, but yeah, that is what I'm saying.
USB headphones come with their own sound cards. Good for LAN, where you can just plug them in and expect to get the exact same sound you get at home without having to open up the case or install anything. Waste of time for anything else.
Very good, sir. It always bothered me that EQing to make the most sibilant albums not cause my ears to bleed muddied the sound and reduced the size of the soundstage to that of a matchbox, especially in the case of less sibilant ones, so I just sticked to very minimal EQing and stopped listening to badly produced music. Will definitely give this a try.
