I bought it from e-onkyo.
played it as follows:
1.foobar2000 - usb - dac(16bit)/DDC - analog - 2ch amp - omni speakers
2.usb memory - AV amp - 7.1ch speakers (DSPed)
3.foobar2000 as dlna server - LAN - AV amp as dlna client - 7.1ch
4.foobar2000 - usb - dac(16bit)/DDC - digital(coaxial) - AV amp - 7.1ch
5.foobar2000 as dlna server - LAN - (other PC)Windows Media Player as dlna client - usb - dac(16bit)/DDC - analog - 2ch vacuum tube amp - bamboo speakers
I decided to abandon 16bit usb dac
6.foobar2000 - Realtek (on board) - analog - 2ch amp - omni speakers
7.foobar2000 - Radeon graphic board - digital(HDMI) - AV amp - 7.1ch
I bought two external USB DAC last September,
because didn't want to hear analog output from Realtek,
but my choice was too mean.
(just needed 1 or 2 more
Noguchi Hideyo to obtain 24/96 DAC ability)
currently I need to call control panel to switch 6 and 7
sounds? I feel nothing special.
WASAPI output support component was installed to foobar2000 yesterday.
It was something should be done first.
