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?

"don't bother"

June 18, 2012  |  By not-brodie

 |  Version: DFX Audio Enhancer 10.137

Pros

none that i can think of

Cons

the sound processing makes music sound WORSE. i get better processing through the reverb effects of realtek soundcards

Summary

i can't believe i actually paid for this trash. what a gimmick. if you're going to buy an app, get breakaway audio enhancer. it actually IMPROVES audio quality

"worked great....for a few weeks"

June 15, 2012  |  By mutiny222

 |  Version: DFX Audio Enhancer 10.137

Pros

works (good for a few weeks)

Cons

only worked for a few weeks after purchasing product then stopped. contacted their support but get no reply

Summary

I downloaded the trial and it seemed to work great! i looked into buying it and noticed for over a month it said it was on sale but only for 1-3 days. It's said that for over a month, now it still says the sale ends in 1 day. anyway, despite this i paid for the program and entered my serial number. the program continued to work great for a few weeks then suddenly it stopped doing anything. i've emailed their support a few times but get no reply. looks like i wasted that $

"No longer wanna hear music without DFX!"

June 06, 2012  |  By AMPanda

 |  Version: DFX Audio Enhancer 10.137

Pros

Drastic improvement to sound quality. Higher bass, much more clarity, higher volume, just great.
Definitely going to buy the Plus version so I can test how it's like with headphones and max effects.

Cons

I can't think of any Cons.

Summary

When I turned DFX off, I was wondering what I had been hearing all along before DFX. It's an addictive amazing improved quality.

"Stay with Version 9 - Program is now trial ware"

May 10, 2012  |  By neplusultraomni

 |  Version: DFX Audio Enhancer 10.137

Pros

The new version has some advantages to it. It is no longer a plugin to Windows Media Player or Winamp. It is now a regular application that starts up automatically with Windows and can enhance the sound of other media players as well as flash based web pages.

Cons

The bad news is that instead of a flash screen that appears when the plugin starts up in WMP or Winamp, the program turns itself off every few minutes and you get a nag screen to buy the full version. So unless you really want to enhance the sound of Pandora or Spotify, you will be clearing a nag screen and turning the application back on every ten minutes. If you still have version 9, stay with it and don't upgrade unless you want to purchase the full version.

Summary

If you still have version 9, stay with it and don't upgrade unless you want to purchase the full version.

"It doesn't work; time waster like a fat burner.."

May 07, 2012  |  By danjoseph22

 |  Version: DFX Audio Enhancer 10.137

Pros

Nothing.. Its hardly a demo!

Cons

it does not work at all. When you move the sliders, a pop up appears and tells you to be amazed when you purchase it.

Summary

A waste of time.. Stay away, because all of its claims were unfounded..
