Did you set the Audio MIDI setup to 96/24? It is in the Utilities folder.

I hate to sound like an ignoramus, but I have been searching for the Utilities and Audio Midi settings on Windows XP to set for 96/24 or above, but I cannot find them. Am I looking in the wrong place? Are they in QucikTime. Help! I want to try running from my Samsung Netbook to W4S DAC2 Usb input and try out High Res tunes.
There is no such setting in XP. Windows 7 has rewritten audio driver stack and it has a lot more control over the output. XP has rudimentary and archaic kmixer in the audio stack which does not allow the output bitrate. AFAIK kxmier will always resample the audio on the output, unless ASIO driver is used. For audio server it's highly recommended to use Windows 7. Also it's highly discouraged to use iTunes on Windows, as it'll add additional Quicktime layer to the audio stack and will make things more complicated. If you use Mac iTunes will work great. On Windows use j River MC.
