The reason why I call it a specific request is because:
A. Musicbee is already capable of bit-perfect output, which is all you can reasonably expect and desire from a top quality software player.
B. HQ player is an advanced resampling/filtering player/algorithm, that might only improve the perceived sound quality for soundcards/dacs with lesser quality resamplers/filters, or might address incompatibilities further in the audio chain.
C. The addition you are suggesting will not be of any benefit for the majority of MusicBee users, but only for the ones who have hardware that doesn't perform to their expectations or requirements, and are willing to spend 130 on a software product to possibly improve on this.
I am not arguing the possible benefits of this possible combo for certain users and setups, and am certainly not speaking on behalf of Steven. If it is an addition he is willing to make and also has fun in doing it, great.
But I want to prevent a notion that MusicBee's sound quality would (could) be improved out of the box. Bit perfect is bit perfect.
And please don't get me wrong, I sincerely appreciate your input and thoughts, it certainly is interesting stuff and food for thought (ears) ;-)
One good argument for posting this as a wish instead of having it somewhere in the long '3.1 thread', is that it will not soon snow under here, and that other users are able to simply +1 your request here if they support this request.
And it will also help Steven in getting a sense of how popular or 'hot' a request is.
