Hello,

I believe I have searched widely for an answer to the question but if it has been answered numerous times I apologize:

Anyway, I was wondering which solution is preferable when resampling audio: resampling audio through the soundcard (Asus Essence ST or better) or through software solutions (either SOX, Jriver, Foobar or whatever your choice may be).

Are there numerical differences?
Are there perceptual differences?


Best regards,
Mikkel

Thank you both for your replies. RightMark scores come out as 'excellent' for all sample rates for the Asus Essence ST so if dynamic range and frequency response can be taken as an indicator then indeed hardware resampling of this card is good (I can post the results if anybody is interested... for whatever reason :-)).

@Arnold: I will take your word for it since indeed I have other more pressing worries (which may not be audio related :-D).

Once again thank you.


Best regards,
Mikkel
