MAC: Audio MIDI Setup for 24-bit 96/192KHz files - Page 2

post #16 of 18

Update: with audioengine's DAC there is optical in and USB in. USB can handle up to 96 kHz and optical can handle up to 192 kHz. Hence me not being able to play 192 kHz via USB.

So, will I not be getting any better output with my DAC since the sample rate and bit depth will be the same? 

 

And DarkSleip, could you explain your comment about DACs not being able to handle 192 kHz? AudioEngine indicates theirs can handle up to 192 kHz but it doesn't even seem selectable with Audio MIDI Setup.

 

Also, is there a way to bypass the Audio MIDI Setup to get true 192 kHz output that is affordable? 

 

(This is USB output.)

 

Thank you for your time everyone.

Hi!! Honestly Speaking, iTunes is not my favourite player, but if you use it, BitPerfect is what you're looking for. (you can buy it in the mac app store)

 

I use Cog for mac, because it is the most neutral reference-class player I have ever heard up to date. Although it doesn't have the feature of automatic sample rate selection(( Also you can try Audirvana Plus, which does have the feature, but IMHO sounds a bit more hi-fi-ish and does not give the soundstage and the air of Cog.

 

Hope that helps
