Well I am back to this thread. So far I have not found a suitable player for Linux, there are just too many issues with audio playback in Linux. I have been at this Linux thing now for less than a year, and I have tried a lot of different distros and worked with a lot of different Linux applications, and nothing compares to the bit perfect playback in Windows. A few things that I have learned are;
1. Audio in Linux basically sucks. There is really no bit perfect way to playback audio files with Linux. Here is a very brief outline of what I have experienced. http://tuxradar.com/content/how-it-works-linux-audio-explained
In Microsoft Windows I use WASAPI to playback audio files, and it is 100% bitperfect. https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/desktop/dd371455%28v=vs.85%29.aspx
2. KDE Linux distros sound the worse. Take any basic audio player like Audacious or VLC, in a Cinnamon or basic distro they have only minimal processing layers that add distortion to the audio playback, but with KDE there are additional layers that render all sound distorted.
3. Arch Linux based distros add the least amount of audio processing.
4. AVLinux http://distrowatch.com/table.php?distribution=avlinux and Ubuntu Studio https://ubuntustudio.org/ sucked for audio playback. They just added too many layers of gunk on top of the kernal that just added too much distortion to the audio.
So I found a different Linux distro that claims that it offers bit perfect audio playback, it called Audiophile Linux http://www.ap-linux.com/about/ I really want to try, I have already downloaded the ISO, but it needs an entire disc for me to install it. http://www.ap-linux.com/documentation/install-instructions-for-v3-0/ I do not know if I want to commit to that just yet because I still use Windows 10 in WASAPI mode to playback my music, but I just might give it a try.
