Topic: Windows 10 / Tidal/ bit-perfect playback
Being new ADI-2 FS owner, I've been reading a lot of threads here, and strugling with getting to play Tidal in bit-perfect mode.
Tidal can use only WASAPI. I've tried both stock Windows 10 drivers, which should (in theory) support frequency auto switching, but this does not happen. RME drivers are stuck at selected frequency as well. I've also tried "VB Cable" ASIO driver ( https://www.vb-audio.com/Cable/ ), which is a bridge between WASAPI and ASIO, and this one works well, except when it does not. I'm experiencing occasional stutter (my computer is 8-core 5GHz high-end PC with 32GB of RAM), so it's useless as well.
Sadly, I was not able to make stock Tidal app on Windows 10 to play bit-perfect(ly) on my new RME.
I know I can use Audirvana and ASIO RME drivers, but I hate Audirvana interface.
What else I can do to achieve bit-perfect playback on Windows 10 with stock Tidal app?
Thank you for any suggestions, including how to get rid off "VB Cable" stutter.
Right now, I've selected 352,8kHz in RME panel, and get everything 8x resampled and played via Tidal (most content is 44.1), but this is not ideal for unfolded 48 and 96kHz MQA content.
