I recently upgraded my sound system and got a DAC to go along with the new equipment.
The DAC has been set as the default output device in Windows and it shows up as "USB Audio DAC" in Foobar. Foobar also supports an ASIO plugin. Does one of these methods have an advantage over the other?
Someone on an audiophile forum mentioned that ASIO would give far superior sound quality, I'm wondering if he misunderstood and assumed I was comparing it to DirectSound or some other method which would involve Windows processing the audio. If it's all the same I'd much rather not use ASIO and save myself the hassle of configuring and updating the ASIO component.
