Topic: Proper Settings
I have the ADI-2 DAC FS. The DAC is connected to two KH120A speakers and ATH-AD700 headphones. Beyond that I do not know too much.
I have been using 16384/384000. My thought process was that setting it this high would help cover all my bases. Someone told me recently that I have been using the wrong settings in my MADIface settings. To my limited understanding of newly acquired knowledge, this is putting the processing in Windows which is something we do not want to do and the reason why we have an external DAC to begin with. We are also trying to prevent up sampling because this can cause audio to be poorer quality. Are all of these points true?
I game, listen to .flacs, and watch movies. I don't want to miss out on anything. But tbh, I cannot tell the immediate difference between 44, 48, or 384. I would feel better though knowing I have the best sounding option... After all, I didn't spend $1,200 on a paperweight.
With that, what performs the best? What should the buffer size or samples be set to?
