    Bit streaming / avoiding resampling

    I have recently purchase some audio equipment and am wanting to get the most out of it. From what I've read, an OS/media player will tend to "resample" audio frequencies at the software/soundcard level before sending it, and from what I gather, that isn't a perfect 1-to-1 copy of my audio to my speaker. My equipment:

    Ubuntu: 11.04 x64
    Mobo (integrated sound): ASUS P5QL-CM - S/PDIF out on Intel G45 chipset / VT1708B, 8-Channel High-Definition Audio CODEC
    AV receiver: Onkyo HT-R380 (PDF manual)
    Speakers: Stereo (connected to 'A' ouput on AVR) - Acoustic Research Red Box II (circa early 90s)

    I have the ASUS S/PDIF 'addon' and I have Ubuntu set to send audio through that.



    I think "bit streaming" is what I am after but I am at a loss as to how to make it happen.

    All comments/help appreciated!
