Posting here as a fellow head-fier turned me on to this great rendering engine, and now I'm hooked. To my ears it clearly is better than JRiver but with a nasty caveat:

I am using ReClock as a means of providing WASAPI for KMPlayer on Windows 7 - using only for playing 2 channel audio into my headphone system.
It sounds wonderful, but there is a persistent problem I can not seem to fix... exactly one second after each song starts, there is a skip of maybe 100ms or so. I've tried songs in FLAC, APE, MP3... doesn't matter.
The crazy thing is if I instantly push next song, pause, wait several seconds, then unpause, it still does it! But once it does it I can skip around the song without any skips whatsoever, even cueing back to the beginning of the song.
I've spent maybe 4 hours scouring the web, this forum, etc, and everything related to drops/skips for ReClock is talking either about video or about something that happens randomly/repeatedly. This only happens once per song and it happens every single time. Changing the duration of the sound buffer or the % latency of PCM/Bitstream has no effect. I've tried both KMPlayer and PotPlayer and the effect happens in both, so it appears to be an issue with ReClock.
Included is a picture of my settings.
