Re: How to be sure about the quality of the audio?

Start from , paying special attention to "DEFAULT DEVICE SETTINGS".

If you upsample, say,16 bits up to 24 bits, you do not lose quality. In fact, if several channels are mixed, e.g. two channels from two different programs: sum = k1 * c1 + k2 * c2 , you gain quality because of smaller rounding errors.

Anyway, define quality first. And realize that if channels being simultaneously played have different sample rates, at least one of them has to be resampled WRT sample frequency.

Im having this issue:
I subscribed to Qobuz (an Hi-res audio quality).

I was using ALSA directly and with alsa, i just put this:
sudo cat /proc/asound/IQaudIODAC/pcm0p/sub0/hw_params 

if it is a 16bit 44000Khz audio i get:
format: S16_LE
subformat: STD
channels: 2
rate: 44000 (44000/1)
period_size: 2160
buffer_size: 8640

if it is a 24bit, 192Khz i get the adequate values.

But with PulseAudio how to be sure about the quality of the audio?
if i put the same parameter (sudo cat /proc/asound/IQaudIODAC/pcm0p/sub0/hw_params ) i always just get the sample rate and format that i config in the daemon.conf... it is not relevant if the audio is actually 16bit or 24 and the Khz are 44000 or 192000 or whatever. 

So... there is a command to know exactly the quality that is really playing?
