So, I have JRiver 18 and am outputting WASAPI. I have both 16 and 24 bit audio running all the time together.

 

Question- I am running the WASAPI output through a Creative XFi HD via the TOSLINK output to an Adcom GDA700 DAC (PCM1702 20 bit DAC).

 

Using JRiver, I can adjust the output to 48khz (the max with a GDA700) and leave the word length at 24 bits. The Adcom can now play my 24 bit files! If I leave the file as 24/96 in JRiver, no dice...of course.

 

How is the 20 bit Adcom able to play the 24 bit files??? 

 

Sorry..but this has been driving me crazy.
