Audio optimizations on bit-perfect playback demonstration

Windows X

Recommended Posts

Today my net was down all day. I was bored so I conducted some tests about audio optimizations on bit-perfect playback. The test is very simple, I setup bit-perfect playback, play music, optimize, and play again. Here is information about test equipment


Sound recording device: Oppo Find7s (CM13 with built-in Sound Recorder)

Test machine: Dad's common Desktop PC with Intel i5 processor running Windows 10 Pro

Audio Interface: Focusrite Scarlett 2i2

Software setup: foobar2000 with ASIO plugin (ReplayGain disabled)

Testing track: Britten: Simple Symphony, Op. 4 - TrondheimSolistene (2L - the Nordic Sound)

Output: Klipsch Promedia GMX A-2.1 speakers


After listening to the first performance, I'll apply the following optimizations as below:


-Reduce output buffering from 1000ms to 50ms

-Increase full file buffering size for memory playback

-Run Fidelizer (free) on Extremist optimization level with foobar2000 as music player application




The recording was done in a single session without using any editing tool to ensure there's no modification to the recording. Let us know what you think after listening to recorded performance.
