Description of Issue
When I listen to bass-heavy music, there is an audible ringing noise in the rhythm of the bass. This happens only when listening on my Windows PC. This is not the case when I play from RPi4 with HiFiBerryOS. This does not happen when playing directly from my Windows PC without Roon either.
To better visualize what I mean, I have applied a low pass filter and did some recording.
Here is the recording: https://vocaroo.com/1PPYuKumcrzw. I made some Audacity edits on it to exaggerate this problem a bit for demonstration purposes. I have noticed it when normally listening to some bass-heavy ambient music. This issue is present in any music, but usually not audible due to being drowned by vocals and instruments. After applying a low pass filter for tests, ringing noise is very easy to hear in any music.
I have also noticed that this problem is gone when I set Exclusive Mode in Roon device settings. Sadly it is not a solution for me as it mutes sounds from other apps. I tend to play online video games, use a voice communicator and listen to the music from Roon at the same time.
