I have noticed old problems with DFX 10 and superior when I was on Windows XP.
So I fixed my PC audio configuration to
- my 24bit-96kHz Creative X-Fi Platinum sound card
- DFX audio enhancer 9
- foobar2000 + the Kernel Streaming audio output plugin
No problem to listen to 24bit-96kHz Flac audio files, even using my JB980 deck (I supposed that the Creative sound card adapt itself to 24bit-48kHz)
Now my desktop got problem but even if it is so easy to find a computer shop in Saigon, I transfer my listening system to my son Acer Timeline 4820T Windows 7 64bit laptop.
This time, no way to listen directly with the optical out to my JB980 deck the 24bit-96kHz audio files. I started to use all the time my analog output (the sound is good enough, Realteck Hight Definition). As foobar2000 cannot be set up nor with Kernel Streaming nor Asio like Windows XP with my Creative sound card, I have tried with success the Wasapi audio output. There was still compatibility with DFX audio enhancer 9.
Then I upgraded to DFX audio enhancer 11 which has a larger compatibility with Windows multimedia applications (it is loaded separately). But no way to use Wasapi with foobar2000, I must "downgrade" to DS.
So I decided to test the Mediamonkey multimedia player (not Winamp, I used it a long time and some people still say it is the best for audiophile purpose, maybe they are wrong). Bingo, DFX audio enhancer 11 accept Wasapi with Mediamonkey. I like the VSL video player very much, now I use it with DFX. The only problem is that I need to be use again with this Airbus plane board like interface (police size has been increase to 150%).
I already imagine the MDietrich long face .
