    Yep, there's no option on the player so I presume that's why. Hmm, I'll see if I can get LM side loaded and see what happens then.

    Iím not sure if it has been said as I have only scanned through quickly. You could use a raspberry pi to read the files and stream to the DAC. You could put one together for about £40 and use a dedicated sw such as Rune or Pidac which runs like a Logitech squeezbox and control it from a phone or tablet. Hereís a link to one blog

    I'm not really sure how they work and it would have to be WiFi too as the internet router is quite far away. Looks like even more aggro !

    There are some real reasons why. Windows XP uses Kmixer that among other things resamples signals to 48kHz, and it is not bit perfect, Kmixer manages to mangle it, and it is also not a low level process, the audio signal gets no priority.

    This is why it is so important to ensure that the system is outputting whatís fed to it, which is why itís required to have lower level software like WASAPI or ASIO, or manufacturer drivers, to bypass the Windows mixer, ensure no resampling, and enjoy bit perfect files.

    Top stuff, mate. I knew there was a reason it was better, just didn't know the reason!
