It appears Pulseaudio is started at boot simply by a file pulseaudio.desktop in /etc/xdg/autostart/

Thats Interesting Sunrat, is the start from /etc/xdg/autostart new in stretch or was that how pulse started before? I see mpd.desktop there too which I know was defintely not autostarting for users previously when stretch was still testing. I will try setting pulse at above 16bit44.1khz as thats news to me, will be interesting to see what my sound card says and if I actually hear the difference. Need to look into my config more because it looks like pulse is started twice.

I'm on Sid so can't tell you much about Stretch. Pulse only starts once, as user. I also have mpd.desktop in there.
Master clock for sound card needed to be changed to 96k to allow 96k playback.
