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,

While the same things are conceptually possible in digital real-time hardware pipelines as in digital software, the practical limitations may be different (delay concerns, available memory, processing power, etc).

My fairly recent TC electronics "home studio" firewire external interface has radically worse performance according to RMAA at anything but 24/96 ASIO. The response from TC electronics was that the RMAA guys must be doing something wrong...
