I didn't know where else to put this question. I'm looking for a program that makes visuals that react to the music/beat. I remember playstation one had something where you put in an audio disc and it would create visuals for the music. Anyone know of such a thing for the pc?

On the Now Playing screen right click>Visualizations> A sub menu comes up with a menu of different visualizations. Battery has the most.:thup:

WMP is nice-ish but why not continue to use Winamp ? you can still download it from the website and there's literally hundreds of plugins you can use.

I have Winamp for a couple internet radio stations but I didn't know they did full screen visualizations like WMP. I use WMP for music because I think it sounds better than the other programs I've tried. Foobar completely fubared my music files once and I didn't care for the sound quality so I just stuck with WMP. (which also seems to have a helluva time not screwing things up)

I'm lucky then only problem i ever had was iTunes deciding it needed to "re-organize" my music library once. Result: every single mp3 i had got the wrong name and ID3 tag... worst software i ever used and has been for many years now, hard to use and takes up a ridiculous amount of space. Even with an iPhone i always recommend 3rd party programs instead of installing this piece of crap software.

I never used iTunes. Or mp3s. My music files have suffered some losses with a HDD issue a while back, but I still have 47+ GB of FLAC and WMA lossless music files.

Difference between MP3 320kbps and FLAC isn't noticeable to an average person unless you have REALLY good audio gear ? same as DVD/Blu-ray, i would rather have a 2gb-3gb x265 with roughly the same perceived quality then an insane 12gb+ per movie on my HDD's :shrug:

REALLY good audio gear

:D That's my take on it. My Paradigm speakers are merciless with detail, good and bad. Audio was my love long before I owned my first computer. Driven by the Class A magic of a big Marantz amp. My SACD/CD player sounds way better than my motherboard does. Sometimes I burn a CD or two (black Sonys are my favorites) for serious listening. Or just because I want to hear more of what my speakers are capable of. The only difference between this http://www.stereophile.com/hirezplayers/1007mar/index.html#oiH8Ul9vsMZbffEY.97 and mine is the one reviewed doesn't have 5.1 support, the original SA 8260 (mine does).

The author of this review owns the v. 3 Studio 60, same as me.
