Editors' Review

+
We don't really understand the mathematical mojo that powers this nifty Winamp plug-in, but we do know it makes audio files sound crystal clear. Here's the basic explanation: DFX for Winamp uses digital-signal-processing algorithms to replace high frequencies, restore lost or diminished stereo depth, increase the perceived loudness of the audio, and add rich bass sound. The result is Internet radio and compressed audio files (such as MP3s) that sound much cleaner and richer. You won't have to dig into a mess of settings to get results, since DFX for Winamp uses only a few sliders and buttons. The full version also includes 39 presets for different kinds of music, though unfortunately, the demo lets you use only three. It also disables the 3D-surround feature, which supposedly creates a surround-sound effect from a normal two-speaker setup. Nevertheless, even the trial version of DFX for Winamp makes your MP3s sound much, much better. On top of that, it's free, and you can use it as long as you want. So what are you waiting for?

"Good program not trust worthy company"

March 16, 2009  |  By maddogmpe

 |  Version: DFX Audio Enhancer for Winamp 8.501

Pros

The product works as well as advertised.

Cons

I paid for this 10 feb 2007 with free up grades. The offered to upgrade me to vers 9. I upgraded, like I always have. It uninstalled the working version, installed vers 9 which did not accept my old keys. It cost me $20 dollars to get new keys.

Summary

THESE GUYS ARE DESPERATE FOR MONEY SO DON'T TRUST THEM WITH YOURS. If they had stuck to their old business model they could have continued to do well, but they got snooby, don't do business with them. Good product bad company.

"Good Software, License Ripoff"

March 07, 2009  |  By annanemas

 |  Version: DFX Audio Enhancer for Winamp 8.501

Pros

Noticeable improvement in sound quality, but they still haven't honored their 30-day upgrade policy. I'm supposed to get a free upgrade because I bought this license less than 30 days before the new release but still have no response.

Cons

Not honoring their license policy.

Summary

Works very well, but can't be trusted with money anymore. Sound improvements are most noticeable on live and bootleg recordings that are more prone to sound quality issues. Quality of commercial recordings may not change much since they have few quality issues to begin with and may be affected more by sound card and speaker quality. Can't recommend anyone buy this, however, since they still haven't provided me with the 30-day free upgrade I'm supposed to eligible for. Since they released the new version 9 less than thirty days after my license purchase, I'm supposed to be eligible for a free upgrade but that was three weeks ago and I still haven't received any response.

"You have got to be kidding me??"

August 12, 2008  |  By Dano

 |  Version: DFX Audio Enhancer for Winamp 8.501

Pros

What a big difference this enhancer makes to the music...the experience with this app is beyond belief...it lets you select 3D Surround sound (headset required) which make you hear the music like if your surrounded by different speakers...

Cons

The only con I find in the app is if you don't download it...your missing out.

Summary

it lets you select 3D Surround sound (headset required) which make you hear the music like if your surrounded by different speakers like an expensive surround sound stereo.

"Software doesn't make a noticeable difference"

August 10, 2008  |  By npwgallagher

 |  Version: DFX Audio Enhancer for Winamp 8.501

Cons

A trial should let you know how a product works. Either this product has nothing to offer, or whatever benefit it might have can only be known after purchase.
