Output: WASAPI, 16 bit, Dither ticked
I thought it won't apply dithering when the source is already 16 bit?

Dithering is only required when you reduce the bit depth of sounds files, 24bit to 16bit for example. It's supposed to be inaudible most of the time yet I would not use in cases it isn't needed.
usually in linux, 0dB is more about 70% or so
that should also mean the higher sampling rates are useless, as far as listening pleasure is concerned ?
the content is 96khz, so I switched it to 48khz thinking "at least I'll get half the resolution".
