I can reproduce this with my USB DAC. Seems to effect DS output, WASAPI doesn't seem to have the problem.

Version 1.3.16

Since volume interface is handled separately from the output with DirectSound (to support the Vista+ per-application volume control), there needs to be something to monitor device attach/detach cycles, and when the configured device is detected attached, reopen the volume control interface on it.

Uhm, do you mean that such 'something' can't be/won't be implemented in fb2k?

No, I was making a note for Peter. He'll need to implement that watch interface in his DirectSound output code.
