Question about "Audio MIDI Setup" and setting up a Mac for audiophile listening

I primarily listen to music on DAPs or just casually listen through my phone.

I have a desktop PC but never use it for audiophile listening. My MacBook Pro (Early 2015), on the other hand, I occasionally do use for music listening.

I don’t use any fancy software to listen to music, nor do I use any of the audiophile streaming services. The player I use is VLC.

So, my question is whether I need to change any settings in Audio MIDI Setup or in VLC?

Unless you have a keyboard (or Synth [or very obscure effect pedals]) hooked up to your computer, ignore Midi.

It depends what the bit depth and sample rate of music files you listen to. I’d set it based on that.

This is what most people said online. But what @MazeFrame is saying also makes sense.
