Reclock, in this guide, is a way to get wasapi. Wasapi is a more pure audio path for pcm.
Even if you bitstream most of what you watch, you might backup some videos with flac audio or some other format that can't be bitstreamed, so you can still benefit.
Reclock can do a lot more with regards to video smoothness, but I didn't get into it in the guide to keep it easy to follow.
Reclock, by default, will change the audio rate and pitch by small amounts so that the video frame rate will be changed to match a nearby refresh rate. For this functionality, ignore the steps to disable the built in estimators, don't slave reference clock to audio, and leave media adaptation unlocked and set to auto. Basically, stop after the first picture in the reclock section. It's important to note that you should only be working in pcm (no bitstreaming, and you're gonna need the arcsoft file for dts-hd) and that you need to have refresh rates set up in madvr for it to work well.Edited by MlNDBOMB - 6/10/13 at 4:17pm
