I am still not clear on the ability of a Windows Media Player based music server to pass digital audio data without affecting the data in any way. Based on some of the posts to this forum I have disabled all equalizers, etc. on both WMP and the Realtek Audio Manager on my PC. But, WMP is set to use 24 bit audio. Under the Realtek Audio Manager S/PDIF output sampling rate is set to 96kHz and output source is set to digital. Can Windows still affect the digital data?
Also, I use a Roku M1001. I rip my music using WAV lossless. My Roku is connected to my wireless router via ethernet cable. I use the S/PDIF out on the Roku to my coaxial input on my Musical Fidelity A324 DAC. Is this setup a bitperfect transfer of data from my hard drive to the DAC?
