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?

"Nag, nag, nag!"

September 15, 2014  |  By DraculX

 |  Version: DFX Audio Enhancer 11.200

Pros

Great sound.

Cons

Nags you to death!

Summary

Once installed and used, this app will nag you every 5 to ten minutes about upgrading to the full PAID version. It will even TURN OFF the sound enhancement during some of these nags. In addition, what I mean by "Nags" are actually little pop-up windows(in addition to turning off the sound enhancement), which remind you that you are not using the full version and supplies two buttons that BOTH link to the DFX website. One goes direct to the purchase page, the other to the home page - to get rid of the pop-up(and turn the enhancement back on), you HAVE to close the pop-up window. Blindly quick-clicking the buttons just doesn't do it, because then you have the app opening your browser(or a new tab in one that is already open). I would NOT suggest using the free version during ANY sort of important or vital work, because of all the interruptions, and program window-switching that happens. In fact, I recommend NOT using this P.O.S. free-ware at ALL! The hassles and trouble are just not worth it.
You can not turn this on and sit down to listen to any audio file or track, because it WILL eventually turn itself OFF! Which forces you to stop whatever you are doing, focus on the idiot pop-up purchase reminder, and then attempt to return to whatever your previous task was - whether it was relaxing and enjoying music, or listening to something while working on your computer.

Unless you intend to purchase this app, AVOID it like a Trojan Virus - it is just a complete and TOTAL waste of your time!

"Too many nags"

July 07, 2014  |  By jangedoo

 |  Version: DFX Audio Enhancer 11.200

Pros

None found

Cons

Frequently (every 5 minutes or so) shows message to buy the full version. Uninstalled within a few hours.

Summary

All it does is increases your volume a bit. But you can achieve this "volume boost" by enabling "Loudness Equalization" of your audio. Go to "Sound" from Control Panel, choose "Speakers", click "Properties", then in the "Enhancements" tab check "Loudness Equalization" and you will have the same sound effect (as far I can tell) as this stupid, constantly nagging software.
