Pulseaudio settings for audiophiles
Jump to navigation Jump to search
Pulseaudio is usually installed with default options to make it work with most hardware.
But settings can be tuned for better sound-quality. Adjust the following settings in your daemon.conf:
resample-method = soxr-vhq avoid-resampling = yes flat-volumes = no high-priority = yes realtime-scheduling = yes default-sample-channels = 2 default-sample-rate = 96000 alternate-sample-rate = 48000 default-sample-format = float32le
- The two sample rate settings can be adjusted to suit your hardware configuration.
- Also the sample-format can also be u8, s16le, s16be, s24le, s24be, s24-32le, s24-32be, s32le, s32be float32le, float32be, ulaw, alaw.
- resample-method can be
