Hey, guys. trying to play some music through my Emotiva Big Ego (a USB DAC).

Unfortunately, running pasuspender – spotify to bypass Pulse (and prevent it from resampling) gives me a "Cannot play the current song" error message in Spotify.

Playback works fine when I uninstall Pulseaudio and only use ALSA, with the following contents in my ~/.asoundrc:

pcm. !default {
type hw
card 2
device 0

Any idea what I’m doing wrong? There don’t seem to be many guides for audiophile playback using pasuspender, so I’m sure this will come in handy for other audiophile Linux users as well.
