White noise with Schiit Gungnir on Windows 7 but not in WASAPI mode?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Hi,

 

I just changed the hard drive and installed Windows 7 on an old HP HDX 16 which had been sitting around for a year and a half with Vista and probably thousands of viruses.

 

I installed the Schiit drivers, and when I use it with Spotify or the like, if I pause the music and turn the volume control up very high, there is a prominent white noise. This doesn't occur when using Foobar2000 with the WASAPI driver.

 

Does anyone have a possible explanation/solution?

 

Thank you!

 

Ben

I just figured something out: it goes away if I change the output from 16/44.1 to 24/192 in Windows sound control panel. I am lost, why would it be noisy in 16/44.1?

EDIT: it does the same thing on my Mac Mini with Boot Camp and I didn't realize it previously. Any ideas?
