Title: Windows10: Flac 2 channel vs. 5.1 channel
Post by: jlm86 on 2021-03-10 18:07:35
Update:
Just installed Foobar on Wndows10
HDMI connection to Denon AVR 3600

Have numerous DVD-Audio, Flac, and ISO 2 channel and 5.1 multi-channel files

I seem to have to change the Windows Sound setting manually when going from 2 channel to 5.1 multi-channel files.

Q. I was expecting Foobar to automatically switch the output to 5.1 or 2 channel , the same way as Kodi does....

Any thoughts?
thank you

i use asio4all drivers to set it up because nvidia doesn't provide asio drivers. Using the defauilt wasapi has always been bogus for me. When you download asio4all and also the ASIO component from foobar, you will need to setup the surround through the ASIO options in FOOBAR under File->Preferences->Playback->Output->ASIO. ASIO does bit perfect playback, but the drawback is that you won't be able to listen to ANYTHING else. it takes control of the audio out and won't allow things like: games, youtube, etc.

I setup 2 dsp's so that I can use the dsp dropdown in the titlebar of foobar to change from 2.0 to 5.0, although these days i've been using the upmix to 5.0 for all my stereo files.

If you need help let me know I can go into further detail.
