I use a USB DAC for playback. I don't have a sound card, I don't use on board sound and all of the Windows sound functions are disabled. So no recording.
There are much better ways to set up a computer for music playback that just a music player (Media Player/JRiver/Foobar/WinAmp/etc.). The software and set up I use copies the file to be played from a HDD directly to memory. From there it goes to a USB port. The clock in the DAC calls for it to be sent to the DAC based on the clock rate in the DAC which can be done as it's an asynchronous USB port. There is no "Windows" sound function here
(not Wasapi nor ASIO) except a Kernel Streaming driver to connect the memory to the USB port. There's no way to make the "music" go back the other way.
Anyway, I know Fidelizer is doing something because play back of the same file sounds different w/wo it.
What I'm interested in::
Other's results from using Fidelizer.
Other programs/methods for improving digital playback.
