[Music] ASIO Output Support

Please can you add support for an ASIO audio output device?

 

As a owner of a separate headphone DAC + Amp, I get much better quality music when I'm using the bit-perfect ASIO output rather than DirectSound, which changes the audio bitstream before it reaches the DAC. ASIO output would be a great compliment to the Spotify high-quality streaming.

Thanks!

Hey folks,



 

Thanks for coming to the Community, and adding your vote to this idea.

 

We're keeping this idea set to 'Not Right Now', as this isn't something we have any immediate plans to implement. We appreciate you sharing your thoughts.

 

Rest assured that if we do have any new information to share, we'll check back in here with a new status.

 



Thanks.

My knowledge of this is somewhat limited (despite my home recording efforts), but could you set ASIO4All to be your default sound device? This should let you run Spotify through it, as it generally selects the default sound device.

 

I have yet to try this fully, but I set my audio interface to be my default sound device whenever it's plugged in. Then, all sound output tends to come through that.

ASIO4All doesn't appear as an audio device, it's a new type of audio output (ASIO). You need to change the application to support it.

The Windows default sound device uses the Windows sound technology stack, not ASIO.

Spotify should support the use of DACs to enable it be be integrated into existing systems

 

Currently all my digital music goes thru DAC.... except Spotify

 

The sound quality difference is clearly inferior 

 

As a consequence I find myself not using Spotify and questioning if I actually should continue to subscribe

Spotify should be able to send bitstream via HDMI! That would make it possible for me to let the receivers DAC decode audio!

+1 . Besides that would allow us to use VST plugins in spotify. I'd like to use IkMultimedia's ARC (accoustic room correction) when streaming music and not only in my daw

Also need a ASIO or something else bit-perfect support. 320kb/s is not so hifi, but this support make it litle bit closer...
