Just installed the Windows 8 RTM. At first, I was really angry. Apparently MS wrote an updated, smarter kernel scheduler and my audio was jerky because it kept interrupting the stream because my ASIO driver was for windows 7 and wasn't coded for the new interrupt code.
Then I begrudgingly tried WASAPI. After various tests, I can verify that it's now totally bit-perfect.

If that wasn't awesome enough, there appears to be a completely new DirectSound server! When playing 20-48khz sine wave sweeps at 96kS/s with the output set to 44.1S/s, there is no aliasing!

Windows 7 WASAPI Shared is also absolutely bit perfect (if processing is completely disabled and samplerate in Control Panel is set appropriate to audio's samplerate).

(Playback: foobar2000/Primary Sound Driver, Recording: Creative ASIO/MIX FL/FR)
