Having read Slash’s link on WASAPI it looks like the audio stream is captured before the sound card converts it to analogue audio. I hope this means if I play a lossless audio track, this is then captured, lossless, and sent all the way to my Dennon Reciever where lossless audio is converted to Analogue sound?!?
Perhaps someone could clarify?
Note that Windows Media player can send audio files to your receiver as long as the receiver is able to decode them. This usually means files without DRM, such as FLAC. Again, your reciver has to be FLAC compatible. The beauty of SWYH is that it captures from applications such as TIDAL – which does not support DLNA for some strange reason.
