If you read the review, you will see that I was trying to solve the problem
that with ASUS's own driver for the Xonar cards, 96k data were downsampled
even when the PC was apparently set-up correctly for bit-correct playback.

Actually, "downsampled" is not quite the correct word, as with the ASUS driver,
a 40kHz tone sampled at 96kHz played back with a frequency of 8kHz, ie,
was aliased from a sample rate of 48kHz. This didn't happen with ASIO4all,
IIRC, or the beta driver that ASUS eventually sent me after the review
had been published.
