Running windows 8, and just put on foobar. Any optimal setting I want to make right off the bat? Should I be using WASAPI?
I have an ASUS DX sound card, with 2.1 Logitech speakers if that helps.

Then, answer this question:

Do you want any other sound to play ( system sounds, skype, other IM's, flash content, ...) while you're listening to music with foobar2000?
If your answer is yes, you cannot use WASAPI (foobar one uses exclusive mode).

Do you care that your audio gets resampled (by windows, if needed) to the sampling rate that you setup in the audio playback settings (right click on speaker in taskbar)?
If your answer is yes, your feelings push you to use WASAPI.

In the end, it is up to how you use the computer where foobar2000 is located.
