1.6.7 beta 4 - high CPU usage while playback is paused

Since last beta CPU usage is a bit higher when playing but somehow when playback is paused CPU usage is way too higher (about 25%). That never happened before.

Windows 10 20H2 x64

Attached screenshot with CPU state with foobar playing/paused.

Indeed. Reproducible on  Windows 7 too with default output mode. Enabling/disabling fading doesn't affect situation. Exclusive mode doesn't cause high CPU load.

I have installed Beta 5 on a DELL laptop with S.O. Windows 10 Pro 21H1

I don't have a sound system connected. I have the music in the internal DSD of the pc.

So far I have used Device: WASAPI (push): Speakers / Headphones (Realtek Audio) and everything sounded great.

I have changed the Device: Default: Speakers / Headphones (Realtek Audio) [exclusive] and it has been a disaster. Only noise is reproduced at maximum volume.

I do not know if there is something I am doing wrong or is that the version has debugging and adjustments left.

------------------------

I have also installed it on my Intel NUC with S.O. Windows 10 Pro 21H1

I have it connected to a Marshall Speaker by RCA cable

I changed the Device: WASAPI (push): Lautsprecher (Realtek® Audio) to Default: Lautsprecher (Realtek® Audio) [exclusive]

The sound is good, but the problem is that sporadically, when tagging from the Playlist View (properties) the sound gets stuck and farts. Reboot and everything OK.

I have the doubt of which is the Device that I have to choose:
- Default: Lautsprecher (Realtek® Audio) [exclusive]
- Lautsprecher (Realtek® Audio) [exclusive]
What is the difference between the two?

I also have it connected to a Young MKIII DAC via USB

I changed the Device: WASAPI (event): Speakers (YOUNG MKIII-BB09 Stereo) to Default: Speakers (YOUNG MKIII-BB09 Stereo) [exclusive]

The sound is also good and I have only noticed that, sporadically, when tagging from the Playlist View (properties) the sound stops for a moment while the metadata is being recorded.

Here I also have the doubt of which is the Device that I have to choose:
- Default: Speakers (YOUNG MKIII-BB09 Stereo) [exclusive]
- Speakers (YOUNG MKIII-BB09 Stereo) [exclusive]
What is the difference between the two?
