I understand that, but the quality of sound from the native asio implementation sounds better to me than asio4all

If what you guys are trying to tell me is "no, foobar can't do that" that's fine. I'd just like a straight answer so I know what my options are.
All members that put forth a statement concerning subjective sound quality, must -- to the best of their ability -- provide objective support for their claims. Acceptable means of support are double blind listening tests (ABX or ABC/HR) demonstrating that the member can discern a difference perceptually, together with a test sample to allow others to reproduce their findings. Graphs, non-blind listening tests, waveform difference comparisons, and so on, are not acceptable means of providing support.
Hello all, i'm resurrecting this old thread cause i need an answer to the OP question, and the preamp trick suggested above it's not working for me, if i set it at -20db the audio doesn't change at all; i have windows 7 64bit, latest version of foobar, xonar essence st.
i use ASIO, and the volume output is too high, if i accidentaly change it to the far right i can damage speakers/headphones/my ears, that's why i'm searching for a way to set a max volume.
Did you set both the preamp for files without ReplayGain and with ReplayGain both to -16 dB?
Is there a specific reason you use ASIO? It seems to cause a lot of pain. Have you tried WASAPI to achieve bit-perfect output? I also don't know whether ASIO output is affected by DSPs, you could try adding an equalizer with all bands lowered appropriately.
People would generally be a lot happier if they stopped chasing the bit-perfect phantom.
