It's fairly well documented that the developer for Foobar is a bit wonky and doesn't care for the 'bit-perfect' craze --- that's why all that support is done through third-party components. However, I still use it because it has the only interface that isn't absolutely awful.
Interesting. Because I do hear a difference between the plug ins, with Media Monkey being better in separation. It is also utilizing the driver CEntrance provided with asio in bit for bit playback. I don't feel Foobar is entirely doing this... I guess I'll just stick with Media Monkey then. I don't have any problems using Media Monkey anyways. I do find WASAPI to be warmer than ASIO. Funny how people say there is no difference yet I clearly hear one :P
The sound stage is wider though on Foobar while Media Monkey is more upfront and intimate. All these subtle differences (yet very apparent) are quite funny lol. In a sense I guess I can't complain because this offers versatility and different sound signatures without having to use EQ.
