AGAIN, NOT SAYING THIS IS CORRECT, JUST SHOWING 2 EMAILS SENT TO CAMBRIGE AUDIO AND THERE RESPONSE.
1ST EMAIL "I've always thought bluray audio was capable of 192/24 using wasapi. After reading the above titled document im not so sure. In the document it states the windows audio and wasapi is only capable of outputting 96/24. Does this only apply to usb and/or the device driver mentioned in the document or does it apply to wasapi in general. When I play a 192/24 bluray and as my avr and gpu/sound card and all hardware and software player support 192/24 will it work or can wasapi just not do 192/24 no matter what? Or will it just do audio.192//24 but not video.192/24?"
ANSWER: "Dear Joe,
Thank you for your email.
Via USB from a computer given the track you can playback up to 24/192 using the USB audio driver.
The driver will allow up to 24/192 via USB for audio only.
Wasapi significantly improve the sound and is limited to 24/96.
If you install the USB audio driver and use ASIO you can stream 24/192 via USB if you so wish.
AFTER THE FIRST QUESTION I WAS STILL UNSURE IF HE THOUGHT I WAS JUST TALKING ABOUT WASAPI AS REFERED TO IN THE ARTICLE. I THOUGHT HE MIGHT THINK I WAS TALKING ABOUT IT JUST FOR THE USB DRIVER IN THE DOCUMENT, SO I TRIED TO BE MORE SPECIFIC AND SENT ANOTHER ONE.
2ND EMAIL: "In the document first mentioned it says"Using WASAPI gives a maximum output of 96/24." Does this refer to WASAPI in any form or just through usb with the cambridge driver? My question is, is it possible to do 192/24 with wasapi? Either through the hdmi of of a gpu/sound card that supports it, or through usb, etc. A sacd, a sacd rip, a bluray, a bluray rip etc. As long as the source is 192/24 and all the hardware can support 192/24 & the player can support it. Can wasapi do 192/24??"
Answer: "It is WASAPI as a format. Joe it is not possible to do 24/192 through WASAPI as we state in the USB Audio guide.
ASIO can support this however, let me reiterate WASAPI can do a maximum of 24/96.
