Last post by Teddy_the_barber - @Case, I see that Phoebus stands separately in their lineup with its own control panel and behavior. Could you try and repeat the actions I described in post 26 and tell us what you get. Also, screenshots of your Asus Rog Speakers Setup window and Win audio setup would be nice.

It'll free up some headroom so you are less likely to overdrive any later stages in the chain, but I don't think people with full range monitoring would be wise to do it, why deliberately chop off the bottom octave? I have Trap tracks where the bass line drops to the 30-40Hz region occasionally. I don't think my mastering clients would appreciate a HPF that high either, if I use one it's usually around 18-24Hz. But yes, if it sounds better to you, then do it!

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.
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.
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.

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.
