Cool, I look forward to hearing more about your experiments. I personally dislike technology in my setup, though to be fair I don't have a setup conducive to using tech for music right now.
I did mess around with the ASIO mod for Rocksmith, which allows me to connect my DAC to use as both DAC and monitor, which is cool. Except my flat response recording headphones lose the thump of playing through my sound system, so.... It does reduce latency and sound better, just not rockin' enough für mich.
