This question isn’t a cry for help, merely to satisfy curiosity. I have a lovely little DAC I use while working on my windows machine, Its the Topping E30 but that’s not important, what is important is that it displays 48KHz when connected to my windows work PC via USB. When I was using this with POP OS on my desktop or laptop it always reported 44.1KHz. Having used this now with the same hardware and Fedora 34 / 35 its now showing 48KHz.
Is this the result of pipewire instead of pulse audio? Is this why Pipewire is said to be “better”? Could something else be at play here?
PS Its a lovely little DAC I just bought a second so I don’t have to disconnect my work PC.
