Best Foobar settings for 2ch audio
I am intending to use an Intel NUC pc with windows 8.1 as an audio playback device, via a USB soundcard. I just wanted some simple suggestions around how to achieve best music quality.
After trying most software, I have decided Foobar suits me best, so my questions are:
* Is there any need to use additional output components such as WASAPI when using Windows 8.1?
* All I need to do is pass SPDIF audio via USB from the PC to my Denon AV receiver, is there any need to spend much on the USB interface, given I will not be using any DAC (the Denon will do that). Any suggestions for a good quality USB device?
* I hope to playback high resolution audio files, mainly 24/96 flac, any suggestions on how to best setup Foobar for this?
Many thanks for any help.
