I think that the way to go for professional audio in Windows is Steinberg
DirectX is for multimedia and games, not professional audio.
The RME for example has very good ASIO drivers but no DirectX direct drivers
(you can see it under DirectX with 'emulated drivers').
But I don't know how we can then distribute the sources of the application
which uses the ASIO Api sdk.
