Support - (fb2k) / Re: NO benefits from using ASIO ?
Last post by Case -
I have at least one exception to the claim that all Xonars do that. I have Asus Xonar Phoebus and its drivers do not mutilate WASAPI or anything else. I just ran RMAA test using foobar's exclusive WASAPI output while Asus control panel was set to 44.1 kHz and 16-bits and frequency response showed pretty much flat line up-to 50 kHz and SNR was 112 dB.

There's a much simpler way to see it.
Of course, if you have a way to instantly see sample rate changes on your AVR display, it's even better.

my DX does not do exclusive-event or shared-event, just timer modes.
Interesting. What OS are you using? Have a d1 and an Essence ST, both work perfectly in all output modes ( Win 10 64bit). Again, I'm not using S/PDIF passthrough device. Maybe it has smth to do specifically with that mode. Speakers - # of channels - Analogue out, then set to WASAPI event. Should work.

AAC / Re: xHE-AAC / FDK2 for Android - also available on Linux soon?
Last post by polemon -
I see no sign of xHE-AAC decoder in any of the devices I own with Android Pie. Is it gonna be added on some kind of .1 version?
Can't say, I just go by what that sales dude said. I don't think i'd make sense /not/ to put it to use on phones (decoding at least). It is supposed to be a broadcasting codec as I understand it. Not putting in onto mobile would be just idiotic. They might as well scrap it at that point. From what I understand, xHE-AAC can never really be utilized as a low-latency codec, so telephony isn't gonna happen with it.

Scientific Discussion / Re: infrasound
Last post by old tech -
Well, we can believe what we want to believe.

The science behind this simply do not stack up.  Ms Pierpont's studies are amateurish and a truck can be driven through those references you have linked.

Brain Dunning is highly respected in the field of science, and he is just one of many mainstream scientists that dismiss the infrasound myth.  But like many other critics such as Randi, Houdini and so on, they are despised by those pushing psuedoscience to back their cause.  Instead of attacking the person, respond to the 6 points he makes which debunks the infrasound claim.

The comparison to the tobacco industry is hardly a good analogy.  Dunning and the countless other scientists do not work for windmill manufacturers or the electricity industry, indeed the scientists not connected to the tobacco industry were the ones championing the health hazards of smoking.  The analogy with the infrasound crowd is is more with astrologers and spoon benders.

Unless you get into conspiracy theories, you have to wonder why hasn't any government agency or health peak bodies anywhere in the world come out to warn the public of the dangers of windmills, or infrasound (which in any event, windmills do not produce any sub 20hz frequencies) as a danger to public health.

  • Install fb2k and:
    foo_input_tfmx
    foo_input_vgmstream
    foo_input_zxtune
  • Start fb2k, choose File | Open..., then click on File types drop-down list
It'll take a lot of time and blinking until the list will be shown. If there are even more input plugins installed (try attached set) the list can't be shown at all.

You are correct.  There's a much simpler way to see it.  Still using the toslink, select "Speakers" as the output device instead of "S/PDIF Pass-through Device".  The speaker endpoint routes through the toslink.  The AVR shows the rate set in the Xonar DX Audio Center regardless. This is a DX from 2008.  Carry on. 

Still using exclusive mode (same result for shared).  FTR, my DX does not do exclusive-event or shared-event, just timer modes.
