ok, thanks for the clarification!
well MME is resampled by KMixer, so this is not quite an option...I only use KS and ASIO, and it's a major annoyance needing to constantly change the samplerate in the drivers whether you listen to CDDA/DVD-A/DVD
and do you think that the metal shield is useless and only decreases the SQ because the IC will get hotter?
any chance you could also review the HT Omega Claro Halo? it looks REALLY good...I'm not fund of the Forte 7.1 because the main headphones op-amp is a JRC4580...I've put LME49720HA on the STX, that's cool stuff! the THD+N is amazingly low.
I will order the ST in the next coming days, but I don't think the 1ppm clock will make any audible difference w/ headphones tbh.
