So I have the Asus Xonar Essence ST audio card.
The beta drivers support bit-perfect audio, which as far as I know means that it automatically selects the sampling rate depending on what audio is being played?
Okay, now while using kernel stream, wasapi (well this one is obvious) or asio, I can only hear stuff from foobar2000.
Now I'm thinking it's kinda useless, since all my audio is in 44.1kHz anyway, so can't I just use the default non asio/wasapi/ks outputs so that I can hear everything (skype, youtube, foobar2000, windows itself) without any quality loss?
Assuming my audio files are 24/44.1, and driver is set to 24/44.1?
Somehow I think there is still a difference, or am I just imaging the sound difference in foobar2000?
The mind can play tricks sometimes.
