Hi, I hope this is the right section.
I've got a notebook with a creative soundblaster audigy 2 NX (usb) and 2.0 Edifier R1600plus.
I'm trying to reach the best audio quality with foobar. Can you help me?
I've installed asio4all and then also foobar bassexciter to add windows media player trubass and wow effects on foobar but I don't know how to configurate them.
I want to take out the max from my speaker.
Thank you!

foobar2000 provides the "best" audio quality out-of-the-box.

Please don't use ASIO output for no reason. That's just asking for trouble.

Whether post-processing improves the perceived audio quality is completely subjective (and also depends on your speakers and listening environment among other factors), so what kind of post-processing you apply is completely up to you.

Previously there have been lots of problems with ASIO output in foobar2000. While many of those got fixed recently by a series of updates to the component itself, ASIO drivers tend to lead to more problems than their DirectSound counterparts. So unless you absolutely need ASIO for audio playback there is no reason to use it, as stated in the link I gave you. Any claims of "improved audio quality" using ASIO are most certainly bogus and subject to TOS #8.
