I use Foobar2000 on a small Samsung laptop (2013, SSD, 8gb RAM, Windows 8.1, 64bit) to stream music from a Synology NAS to an Asus Essence One USB DAC (I know, not the best but a setting that fits my limited budget...). My 300 GB of music files include downloaded MP3s, lossless high-res and CD quality FLAC files and WAV files, as well as FLAC files ripped from my CD collection. Therefore, bitrate varies considerably between tracks. My problem is how to select the best audio output settings. The Foobar2000 website advises using the Windows settings which allow to select up to 24 bit / 192 kHz output. The problem is that I then need to manually select the bit / kHz settings each time, otherwise it would modify all files to fit the selected numbers (eg a 16bit / 44100 Hz file would undergo processing to become a 24bit / 192 kHz file which I obviously don't want). The alternative is using an ASIO plugin which I have done, however I read lots of people resent doing that for many reasons, and I am sometimes annoyed by "clics" at the beginning and end of tracks (an issue I have read others have also experienced). I am thankful for any comment / suggestion on which Foobar2000 audio output settings would best fit my needs and automatically adapt to different bit rates. I know some people may advise me to start using JRiver, but though I might do just that at some point, I still like Foobar2000 which is free and has served me very well so far. I also take advantage of this thread to thank Chris and all CA contributors for their hard work Thanks, Chris
taitdebaca posted a topic in SoftwareI just got my CAPS v2.0 up and running. Sounds great but I was wondering what kind of tweaks can be done. What are some suggestions as to the best way to set up the Audio Output in JRiver. Details: Windows 7 Jriver 17 DAC: HRT Streamer 2 (only showing 44.1k sample rate) Thanks in advance for your input.
