Default State of Windows USB audio drivers?

I'm kicking around the idea of building a newer headphone DAC, this time using asynchronous USB audio instead of SPDIF.

However it looks like I've got one big wrench in my plans - Windows drivers. It looks like most folks are going with XMOS parts for the USB interface, which look like great parts and have a nice evaluation board available - but the evaluation system comes with Thesycon (?) evaluation drivers that periodically beep/click, and I can't afford to buy drivers for a hobby project. It sounds like these drivers aren't needed on OSX or Linux, which would be great if my primary computers weren't running Win7.

I'm going for a small/compact/'customized' system, so grafting in a WaveIO card or similar is something I don't want to do.

Any suggestions?
