What output were you using in AIMP? DirectSound, ASIO or WASAPI? Does the Windows mixer also show problems? And WASAPI in exclusive mode?
Discarding the first 0.5 seconds is indeed an annoying habit. What kind of DAC is it?
Thanks for responding.
In AIMP I only tried WASAPI exclusive, event and/or push of which I don't know the difference.
I haven't tried Windows mixer yet but shall play with this tomorrow.
The DAC is a Chord Mojo that is connected over USB.
Theoretically, could it have to do with that AIMP does resampling by default? As far as I can see it can't be turned off.
