I'm testing some 24 bits FLAC files in foobar v1.1.18 and it plays fine but in Playback>Output, Output format data is still 16 bit and it can not be changed as it is grayed out. My device is correctly selected AudioBox 22VSL. (file's properties: Bits per sample : 24)

how can I confirm 24 bits is being played and not down sampled 16 bits?

sound card: http://www.presonus.com/products/AudioBox-22VSL
OS: Win 7 SP1

Thanks

Bit depth is 32bit - as handled by DirectSound in Windows 7. Foobar sends 24 bit data to DirectSound engine of your OS and everything there is handled by DS/device drivers with 32bit precision or lower (like 24bit), accordingly to your soundcard specification and capabilities. Assuming you are using DirectSound output of course smile.gif
