...with notification toast for each change?

six clicks to change soundcard is really too much :)

I would love for this to be implemented, if possible! :)

See you talking about from within a specific output plug-in or changing the actual output plug-in? As the first which I suspect is what's wanted would need to be done by the indovidual output plug-in.

just a basic cycle through available directsound devices would be more than enough... a special choice of cyclable devices would be even more awesome (then a change notification wouldnt be needed) or even an alt+shft+1...5 for number of device. whatever is easiest really.
notification could be in the scrollable song title field/taskbar for example. no need for new interface elements.

Ok, so it was as I thought - it needs to be done by the output plug-in due to output device selection being specific to the output mode used. Not much I can really do with the DirectSound plug-in as I don't think there's an interface it exposes to live change things either (you'd be looking at best a hack that causes a restart to allow for the config used to be manipulated which defaults the point of what you're wanting).
