Hello
I wish to know which is the best file format to convert to. I have a Zodiac Platinum DAC for PC,  and also an Astel&Kern 256 for protable playing. I use Foobar 2000 on my main media music system via Yamaha 3030 and MK Sound 150 7.1 speakers.
Size of files is not imprortant as I have large disc capacity available. But I do want the best format and bit/sample rates.
I currently use PROduce-RD and format to .wav at 24/192. I source music files via iTunes, HDTracks and AllMusic or via CD or BleRay, SDAC disks.
I have many problems with track tags and mostly need to do this manually. Is there a way around this?
Thanks you and regards
Adrian

Hello Adrian,
If you use foobar2000 as audio player, better choise use PCM formats (WAV, FLAC).
Foobar2000 support ASIO and WASAPI drivers. It allow "bit perfect" playback.
I don't know about supporting DSD DoP mode by foobar. Thus better use PCM mode.
For Astel&Kern 256 need seek the best sounding mode. Of course, it is measurable. But here need special equipment. I.e. need check your player by hearing.
Best regards,
Yuri
