Having sat down to listen to music for the first time in ages I noticed that I am no longer getting bit perfect output from my RME card. I'm not sure what has happened, I'm guessing some sort of Windows update, but I couldn't see anything wrong last night.

I'm using the WASAPI interface in Widows 7 x64, co-axial S/PDIF out and tried both XBMC and Foobar2000 to play Apple Lossless files. I have a Natalie Merchant album (Ophelia) which is HDCD encoded and therefore I know all is well as the little light comes on on my DAC. Last night it was sometimes on using XBMC and didn't come on at all when playing through Foobar.

Everything still sounds fine but I know it should be able to pass a bit perfect stream to the DAC so I'm puzzled as to why this is no longer the case.

Has anyone else experienced this or got any advice on how I can get back to where I was?

Thanks
Simon

More recent versions of Foobar2000 have built-in HDCD detection and will convert to 24-bit. I'm not sure if this is standard or by default, but if it was happening it would certainly explain the light being off.
