i know this goes against everything that has been said. the sound quality and especially imaging is much better with ks on my system. wasapi does not let me choose 32 bit but ks does if that makes the difference but i doubt thats it. i am using pphs ultra and going to try sox but i think sox is lower quality. i am using 32/192 to the soundcard,192 from the sounnd card going to the dac. i have to do this since there is no other way with this soundcard. i cannot do bit perfect. maybe that is why ks is better, i don't know. the fact is it is far better than wasapi on my system. it is hotter,more lively and has much better soundstage and air. i just figured i'd tell about it since it is worth a try for anyone.
edit: it is 32 bit. i tried ks with 24 bit. wasapi does not allow me to use 32 bit. i know i should not be able to hear this technically. it must be something with my hardware. sox is also better which does not make much sense. there is simply much better soundstage and air around the instruments.
now, if anyone knows a way i can get wasapi working with 32 bit i bet i''d be even better off.
