How does it work ?

From Chris’ web­site :

Many audio pro­cess­ing appli­ca­tions still pro­duce high-definition audio such as 24bit/96kHz in a legacy WAV for­mat. By default Direct­Show play­ers (such as Media Player) won’t be able to play these files as the Audio Ren­derer refuses to accept this legacy type even though it is per­fectly capa­ble of play­ing it. This fil­ter reg­is­ters itself as being able to han­dle this legacy for­mat, and at the same time con­verts to a for­mat the Direct­Show Audio Ren­derer will accept (WAVEFORMATEXTENSIBLE). This is done with­out alter­ing the audio data in any way.

Alter­na­tive: The Ffd­show Audio Decoder can han­dle play­back of 24-bit and float­ing point WAVs in Direct­Show. It is avail­able here.
