I use Windows Media Player 9 and iTunes. I use iTunes to import all of my store bought cd's onto my hard drive. Everything else, like just playing a cd or audio clip, I use Windows Media Player 9. The beta relase of 10 is out but I heard it still needs some work.
I am a big fan of WinAmp due to the windowshade mode, cause I can easliy keep on eye on everything. I do however miss the feature in WinAmp 3 where you could have multiple playlists loaded at once and just pick from those lists.
Yeah it makes sense,With Audio there are lots of strange terms we have to use to explain.
I was wondering if it was something technical in the software that other players dont have.A feature if you will.
Although im all about signal purity.My amps have no preamps and no tone controls.Nothing against anyone that does though.Its just my preference.
FB2k by itself shouldn't sound any better with no DSPs, but with DSPs you should be able to notice a very slight difference in sound quality because FB2k DSP's process audio in 64-bit float while other players use 16-bit integer, also FB2k is (one of?) the only player to allow resampling anywhere in the DSP chain.
I switched to windows media 9.
I read the wma files are of better quality than mp3's at the same bitrate.
I havn't done any ABX tests yet but they definitely sound good at 192kbs.
Plus I like the HDCD decoding ability.
