Professional audiophiles have had little say in the benchmarking suites we see during reviews, even when a sound card is under review.  D.A.W. Bench aims to fix that, offering a way to compare audio quality and performance across multiple OSes.  The Inquirer can give you an earful on this topic, if you let them.
“ONE SET OF benchmarks you don’t see all that often are professional audio ones.

Even more obscure is testing those programs under different OSes, not different hardware. Vin Curigliano of D.A.W. Bench took a look at Nuendo and Cubase under XP and Vista here, worth a read if you are into audio.”
