Last week I bought a Fiio E17 I'm happy with it. Because I didn't have a toslink cable yet I connected the device with an USB cable which, according to the manufacturer, only supports a sample rate of 96Khz.
This all was working fine. My computer recognized the device and worked as it should.
Today I received my toslink cable and connected it to my computer and I was happy that I finally could get the best out of the device....until I went to the configuration panel...
Altough my VIA HD VT2021 supports a sample rate of 192Khz it only support this for the speakers out!
Nowhere was the 192K option found for the SPDIF out!
This is actually pretty frustrating and I started looking for (custom) drivers but since the chip is not that popular I couldn't find anything to help me out but I was not gonna give up.
So what I did was the following:
I googled the WASAPI plugin, download and installed it, fired up an album with 192K Sample Rate and checked my Fiio...
It recognized it as 192K music!
So I tought it might be an error somewhere so I tried outputting the same music with WASAPI trough the USB cable and it didn't work!
This makes me believe the VT2021 DOES support 192K Sample Rate through SPDIF but does not give the options...
So I wonder, does anyone know if and how can I force the driver to use a sample rate of 192K outside WASAPI.
tl;dr? -> Can I force the audio driver (VT2021 chip) to use a sample rate of 192K
