The Listening Toolbar is used to listen to active network channels and optionally record them. All audio streams will be played at 48 kHz and/or 96 kHz if the sound card supports these formats. Otherwise audio data will be converted to a supported format.

The level can be boosted up to +15 dB. This does not affect the recording level.

This feature is useful for the audio signal headroom required by the system because the internal levels are lower.
