Advice on improving my computer based system
Sorry for the double posting (posted as well in hi-fi section) but I think this is the proper section where to post this one!
After a few days with my new system I am wondering if there is an easy way to improve the sound quality using any specifique software (I mean, the quality is already great, but I am wondering if there is any efftortless solution to further improve it). I do not have any CD player but playing 100% from internet (grooveshark, Accuradio and spotify) or local MP3s.
I read a lot of stuff on the forum and Internet on bit perfect, WASAPI, ASIO and so on...but just got very confused on the subject sicne I am still a rookie in this amazing hi-fi world. I am currently using a pretty modern pc (i7 2600k on Windows 7 64bit 8Gb RAM). My main player is usually VLC, I also downloaded I tunes, I have Windows Media Player of course.
I have an Arcam rDAC connected trhough USB....
1) Does really a bit perfect stream make any sensible (something I can hear) difference than just plugging the DAC and pressing play on VLC without pre-installing anything?
2) If so, what's the most stable solution to use on W7 64bit (woudn't mind changing player)
Thanks to everybody!
