What do you mean by RT?

If a soundcard does not support your source data natively, resampling is inevitable.

RT = Real Time

Then I would simply disable the soundcard and get a new proper one.

It's the graphics rendering of the applications etc running that would take the CPU time. Not sending PCM data around.

Of course resampling introduces delay, hardly acceptable in time-demanding applications. Which definitely is not just playback, there is lots of time available.

I suspect it would be just fine for straight ahead playback of wav, flac, ape, mp3, ogg.
But sometimes I use a convolution engine (or other DSP) and was wondering if the little 800Mhz CPU could do it.

From what some of you are saying, maybe not?

latency seems to be the new completely pointless audiophile buzzword of the moment.

I myself dont mind so much waiting for my audio to begin for a few ms

Not me, it drives me crazy. I have to wait over 10 ms for the sound to get to me from my speakers!

Well if that isn't a persuasive argument for near field single ended triode listening, I don't know what is!

It would have been interesting if it included any valuable information, apart of the feelings of the nicely-writing author. Internet is full of "reviews" like that. OK, only some of them about your software.

A DBT test comparing your setup with a regular bit-perfect player (e.g. foobar) with positive result (the listener was able to distinguish the two systems) would be really interesting. But IME that is not going to happen.
