    Here's same track, recorded at 192k sampling rate from line output of the Explorer2. I tried to get as low noise output from the DAC as possible,...

    Don't do that, don't mix foobar stuff with HQPlayer. First make sure you don't have foobar running, then set your DAC as the device! In...

    No there isn't, because the MQA filter begins to roll-off at about 30 kHz cuts out prety much everything by about 44.1k. At least the Meridian DAC I...

    What happens if you just use the default ALSA plugin setup and store the output? No blue light on Meridian DAC with this file.

    Not so much compared to what comes out of a Meridian DAC doing full decoding. I recognize quite a bunch of common signatures.

    This looks like a network configuration or firewall issue. Latest version is 3.14.4 release, betas are something prior to 3.14.0 release.

    Maybe, or maybe not. :) It is better to keep it at -3 dB always. You leave some headroom and don't need to adjust when you go for PCM sources.

    No, it would become too slow that way. GPU's are good for certain types of tasks, but not all.
