    Strange Audio Issue, Intermittent audio in WMP, and FOOBAR 2k

    Okay so this started all of a sudden with no warning or anything. I was playing a game while listening to music on WMP, then suddenly my computer started freezing up and being slow. The audio would cut in and out of WMP, and Discord a VOIP app. I finally restarted my computer because I couldn't get WMP or Foobar to play an audio. After the reboot WMP and Foobar 2k still won't play audio without it stopping for 3-5 seconds every 30 seconds or so. This is so strange because it only happens in those media players as far as I know, it's not an issue with games, with chrome, or even with Ableton Live 9. What gives? Currently in the process of doing a driver sweep, and starting off fresh. Oh btw I'm running a FiiO e07k USB head amp as my audio processor, I've also tried a cheap roccat juke plug n play thing with the same issue so I want to say it's clearly not a driver issue? IDK this is so annoying, any help would be amazing.

    IF it matters
