1.Regarding the sample rate / bit depth display of the E17K
A: The sample rate / bit depth display of the E17K is for approximate reference, and will differ depending on the playback device / settings used. The following test data using a Windows 7 computer are shown for reference:
The above assumes that kernel streaming / ASIO / WASAPI output is chosen on the player software on the computer. For ASIO output support, please install the ASIO drivers for the E17K here:http://fiio-tool.fiio.net/Drivers-for-the-E17K.zip
If the player software is configured for wave / DirectSound output, the “actual sample rate” depends on the sample rate and bit depth set in Control Panel→Hardware and Sound→Sound→E17K→Properties→Advanced→Default Format:
In this example the actual sample rate and bit depth are 44.1kHz / 24bit (displayed on the E17K as 48kHz / 16bit).
