I'm running a 50 ft spdif coax cable out of my computers x-fi platinum sound blaster soundcard into my Dennon 989 for my flac music. I was recommended to use aimp3 music player program. Is this good choice? Iv'e also been advised to try foobar music player. Anyone know will foobar sound better than aimp3? I have pretty nice Rocket speakers. In aimp3 Under playback options under device, which am I supposed to select--
asio, direct sound, waspi, or waspi exclusive?
After looking into a bit more, am I right the best 2 for me would either be:
ASIO- for including computer sound effects
waspi exclusive- for music sounds only
For either waspi or ASIO I have settings for both speakers or SPDIF both labled as creative SB X-fi. I find selecting speakers instead of SPDIF gives a better sound.
