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?

"It's not worth the hassle."

July 05, 2012  |  By Thomas_Sisson

 |  Version: DFX Audio Enhancer 10.139

Pros

None! None!

Cons

It's cripple ware. That means it is very limited without upgrading to the paid version. When the program loads, it stays on the screen. You have to pay to allow the program to minimize. You can shrink it to the small skin, but it just hangs around. There is no way to close the program without shutting down the process. I've used Task Manager on Windows to shut down the process.

Summary

I downloaded the most recent version (as of June 30, 2012) from a link at the Microsoft website. That version can be uninstalled. It does nothing to improve the audio. In fact, all audio has been greatly reduced in volume. If you want to watch a movie on your computer, use the hardware that is available. If you want a movie theater experience, set up your surround sound equipment or watch it at a theater. Don't bother downloading any version unless you want to pay.

"This is the worst kind of crippleware."

July 04, 2012  |  By Crankity

 |  Version: DFX Audio Enhancer 10.139

Pros

Who can tell? the software is unusable without paying.

Cons

Feature after feature is disabled without paying and without any indication that it's disabled without clicking on it and getting a pop-up window.

When you finally resign yourself to trying the few useless presets they do give you the software keeps throwing up nag screens every few minutes.

Sell your software or don't. Don't try every shady trick in the book to try to twist my arm into buying it.

Summary

They show so much greed and disrespect for the user I wouldn't give these people money if it were the best software in the world and they had a gun to my head.
