I am using Clementine to output directly to ALSA (hw:0,0). Does that option has any resampling/converting in it? I need it as lossless as possible.


The plughw device would automatically add resampling/converting, if needed. The hw device goes directly to the kernel driver.

  • So the 'hw' device does direct digital output to sound card without any conversions? – fixxxera Aug 19 '16 at 10:45
