Many users have multiple audio devices on their computer. Below are some examples:
Probably, you may find switching among multiple audio playback devices for different applications periodically are quite irritating. For example, you may require using 7.1 surround audio speakers for watching a movie, but may prefer switching to the built-in audio device for listening to music via headset. By Windows default, you have to right click the volume icon in the system tray, open sound setting dialog of control panel, select the new audio playback device, hit default button and click ok. That takes a long route.

Just right clicking the systray icon of Virtual Audio Streaming, in the context window all the installed audio devices in the system are displayed and you can choose your desired audio device with 1 click.
