DFX Audio Enhancer 11.108

DFX dramatically improves the sound quality of Internet and digital audio. Whether you're listening to downloaded audio tracks or live Internet radio streams, DFX will greatly enhance your listening experience. DFX enhances Internet-oriented audio listening experiences by correcting for the sonic limitations of nearly all the popular data compressed Internet audio formats. Data compressed audio suffers from two major problems: loss of high frequency fidelity and loss of stereo separation and depth. DFX compensates for the loss of high frequency fidelity by carefully regenerating the missing high frequency harmonics in the audio. DFX then compensates for the reduced stereo imaging and depth by carefully generating ambience and stereo depth. Typical PC-based multimedia playback systems and even home stereo playback systems also suffer from limited dynamic range and headroom. DFX compensates for this limited headroom by carefully processing the audio to increase the perceived loudness of the audio without altering the perceived dynamic range. This can dramatically increase the undistorted playback level available when listening to MP3 and other streaming audio files.

  • 3D Surround Sound - Immerse yourself inside the music

lol to each its own, I love the little program and it improves the sound fidelity greatly for me, of course you need to have a decent speaker system to use this, don't even pretend to use it with your crappy factory speakers.

Anyone with a decent set has a hardware equalizer, which far outdoes any program.

Don't download this program! That is, if you like the performance of your machine.

The virtual sound card driver that this program uses is horribly written. It sends your DPC Latencies through the roof!

Like I said, don't download this program if you like the performance of your machine.

I have a Core i5 with 8GBs of RAM and I notice the little difference in performance over time as the machine is online. Of course, rebooting the machine fixes this issue but I shouldn't have to reboot my machine!

Of course this means that the driver is not only having performance issues but also that it's leaking kernel memory.

Come on guys, this is the world of Windows NT! If I wanted to go back to a time in which I had to reboot my machine every two days I'd go back to Windows 9x.

I never had to reboot my machine every so often until I installed this awful POS software. Uninstalled it and I can have my machine online without a reboot for weeks at a time with no issues.

So it's a $25 equalizer. I would imagine that if you cared that much about audio quality, you'd play it with a program that offers more control than what this thing offers anyway - for free. But then again, what do I know? People still use WinAMP in 2012.

What's wrong with Winamp? I've been using it since 1999 and it's fantastic!

Indeed, its still a clean style lightweight all-round music player, the VLC amongst music players imho.
There's absolutely nothing missing in Winamp for me, and I found other music players to lack something (never played, global hotkeys, simple plain lightweight overview)

Th e "dynamic boost" setting is an heresy, it just perform loudness compression,
and that's actually why dfx give the illusion to sound "better" ( it's louder).

Totally disagree with you, it does indeed improve audio big time, you just need to know how to use it and don't forget when you use this program you also need to keep in mind the settings on your audio card or you could be causing weird sound effects.

I have performed some simple test - first i have used DFX for some time and turned it off after a while. To me it sounded much better with DFX off.
