Use a wasapi plugin that allows you to use exclusive mode. That makes this option not relevant. Most video and all popular audio software should have that.

 

 

Though in general, do select 24 bit if the dac supports 24 bit. The sampling rate option will resample everything that uses a shared renderer.  If you have to resample and use a shared renderer, there are excellent plugins for that for most players. Just make sure it is the same as the windows setting so you arent resampling twice.

Hi does Fiio E10K works well for IEM like the RE-400?

Wow.  I'm having a great experience with the E10 running the HFM HE-400i's for the past couple of weeks.  I have not used my main rig since then.

 

What a great amp/dac.  I'm really impressed. Again.

 

oh yeah- yesterday it did a respectable job with the Alpha Dogs at low volume.

I stopped using my E10 due to scratchy background noise and degrading quality while using it... I LOVE my Audioengine D1 as a comparable DAC/Amp

Hate to admit it, but after about a year and half, I'm getting some distortion and noise as well.

 

Oh well, for the price it was fun. But I see a Schiit Fulla in my future.

I just end up unplugging it and plugging it back in and it seems to clear up but I still hear random background distortion. Its sad I was hoping to support this company more.  They offered to test my 2 DACs but I don't know if I want to bother paying to stick them on the slow boat to China (Or Taiwan) to have them fix it.

Naah.  I never ignore an opportunity to buy new gear  :biggrin: 

 

edit: I have nothing against FiiO.  That was a year and 1/2 of heavy use and abuse.
