Does anyone know what different it makes if you change the buffer size or what the safe mode box does? I change mine to 2048 with the safe mode off and I think it's slightly better.
Enabling "safe mode" increases the number of samples relating to Output Latency. What player are you using?

The Qobuz app.
You can choose which DAC on the Qobuz app to achieve bit perfect but don't think one can choose either Wasapi or ASIO on the app-I assume that will have to be chosen on the laptop? Not sure-someone else maybe can answer that.

It's in the app.

I just tried the trial of Audirvana. It's quite a program. My old laptop sure doesn't like to run it through. Lol I think I'll stick with Foobar.
Yes, it's resource-hungry. I am using an old PC and at times it stutters when several programs are running at the same time.

Nevertheless, it is a matter of realising that potential.
And the cost of development/engineering has been fairly well explained already in this thread.

Yes. It takes effort.

But why is all this stuff rehashed in every DAC review thread?
And every time there is yet another attempt by a science/psychology denier.

Well, there always are. Some people just need to deny science to avoid feeling insecure about a 25.000 USD DAC.
