    DTS Sound Unbound application (normally $19.99) is $9.99 for a limited time. You may need to install the app, and purchase through it to get the pricing. (That's how I discovered it)

    I don't know if Dolby Access (Atmos for Headphones) is on sale, tho I got it while it was 20% off awhile back.

    EDIT: Appears Dolby Access (Atmos for Headphones) is $4.50 off as well. Normally, it's $14.99.

    Its limited to 16bit/44khz I believe for headphones. Not worth it to me.

    16/48 is what it defaults to, actually. But from what I understand, it will maintain bit depth and sampling of your encoded source, as applicable. Gaming audio is usually 16/48, or less.

    Nice. Thanks for the alert. It is superior to Dolby Atmos spatial surround sound, if you use "spacious" instead of "balanced" mode.

    It is a psychological placebo. If the bit/kHz was 64/768 you would pour liquid gold from your ears.:rolleyes:What, No?

    It's a venerable belief that Windows resampling is horrible. When Win10 came out, they rebuilt how audio is treated, and made DirectSound both capable of being bitperfect and improved the resampling quality.

    Or he's a 24/96 or better junkie. ;)
