Has anyone else noticed "distorted" audio playback when playing regular mp3s or flac files AFTER watching a Youtube video? I have noticed it especially with "bassy-er" songs. The only way I can fix it is by disabling the playback audio device then renabling it in the W10 sound manager. Is there a permanent fix for this?

Hey there, What playback software are you using? Does it do it with other players? After you watch the youtube video, do you leave the browser open or is it after closing it? Have you tried different browsers?

I am using foobar. I have tried with VLC and it does not happen so I'm guessing the fault may be with foobar. I sometime leave the browser or close it after but this does not make a difference. Using different browsers as well does not make a difference. I will say though that I never experienced this problem with windows 7, only windows 10.

Hmm... if you are using USB2 mode, I'd recommend the ASIO plugin with foobar for output. Otherwise, WASAPI plugin may work better if you are using U1.

I am using USB2 mode, and have tried my best to use the ASIO plugin but every time I enable and adjust the equalizer, the audio starts to clip, especially if I adjust the lows. Not really sure what to do at this point since I really like foobar and would like to continue to use it.

If the music you listen to is mastered to the limit, you won't have any headroom for boosting the lows. You'll either have to turn the input signal down, or cut the mids/highs instead of boosting. foobar can use VST plugins so you can find an EQ that will suit your needs. These are some useful free ones: http://www.voxengo.com/group/equalizer-plugin-download/
