USB output from Foobar with Windows XP?


I am trying to send a bit-accurate signal from my Windows laptop via USB to a Benchmark DAC1 using Foobar2000. I selected the KS:USB Audio Device as an output. When I attempt to play with a 16-bit data output format, I get a message saying the KS is experimental and may not work. If I close this box try to play a song, the counter does not move and nothing happens. When I use anything besides 16-bit I get a KS output error. Is this possible with Windows XP?

If you are using the new DAC1 USB model (as I am) just use the "DS: Benchmark 1.0" output setting. If you are using an external USB device to convert USB to S/PDIF or Toslink (for input to the DAC1) you should probably use ASIO or DS (aka DirectSound). Kernal Streaming has never worked well for me in Foobar.
Scrith:
Does DirectSound bypass Kmixer? My system works with the DS/SPDIF.
You should not be using KS or ASIO with the Benchmark DAC-1 USB. It is a driverless firmware that bypasses kmixer. Just use Directsound or DirectSound2.
