Nintendo Switch USB audio quality

    So Nintendo added USB audio output to the Switch with FW 4.0.0.
    It works both docked and undocked with my Schiit Fulla 2.

    I just wonder what the actual sound output is?
    Is it lossless, is it lossy?
    It sounds a bit thin, with Fulla 2/Fidelio X2 but that could also be because Nintendo hystorically uses 32khz for their audiofiles.

    Has anyone actually measured the output or can point me to a windows tool that can do it?
    I tried with Audacitys USB recording feature, but it doesn't recognize the Switch/the Switch doesn't activate USB audio.

    Half a year later, has anybody looked into the matter or has a link?
