    "Amplifies sound and magnifies quility."

    January 30, 2007  |   By tootallhall

    Version: DFX Audio Enhancer 8

    Pros

    After using the demo for musicmatch I found this plugin to provide a reasonable increase in sound and quality. Enough improvement to look into buying the regestered version. THe demo provided 2 processing modes that was well demonstrated. I then purchased the master pack which is on sale. Many users may find they can do much of the same in advanced features in the players such as equalizer but this simplifies the process giving you controll with in a few clicks. Supports new Vista and newer versions of surround sound that a equalizer may not have. Learning advanced features for all the players this supports would take 4 times longer than to learn a basic controll panel for all your music players. Unlike equalizers this allows better processing of MP3 files. Allows user to minimize into a sleek bar or minamize to the task bar. I have had no such spyware or viruses or anything to do with advertising. If your computer is your music entertainment center than this investment is worth it. Get best value while on sale. You may not have or even know what some players are but your key will work when ever you decide to use a different player and plugin (if you buy masterpack on sale) XP USERS CHECK IT OUT. Demo is free.

    Cons

    If you buy the Master pack you need to download each plugin for each player. Hope they come out with single install file in the future

    After using plugin for Musicmatch -Winamp 5 - Real Player - and Windows Media Player I found a slight delay in loading certan players. (May depend of computer)

    When recording DFX enhanced MP3 to CD I found with certan player the default setting cause slight distortment when playing on a CD player. (Only have half duplex sound card) I doubt this mattters.

    Needs some work when web browsers load video inside them because it does not always worka after loading. Yes designed for music but I found it helps on some video to so this is a needed improvement.

    Demo does have a anoying popup to regester and is very general to its actual performance.

    Need to design a price for lifetime upgrades like musicmatch Plus or minor ones anyway.

    "It's really nothing but a gimic."

    December 17, 2006  |   By Dano

    Version: DFX Audio Enhancer 8

    Pros

    Boost the sound of winamp volume. And, has its own spectrum analizer.

    Cons

    You can do this your self by adjusting the volume manually. I don't recommend buying it 'cuz it's really not worth it. And I forgot to mention...it nags you to buy it unless you already purchased it.

    "Great Audio Enhancement Product"

    September 3, 2006  |   By pja138

    Version: DFX Audio Enhancer 7.5

    Pros

    DFX enhances the audio output of any file played through the Winamp Player. There is a noticeable difference. If you have your computer wired to a receiver and a high end sound system you can really hear the improvement.

    Cons

    None.

    "Very Good Addtion to Winamp"

    June 30, 2006  |   By DaSpEcTeR

    Version: DFX Audio Enhancer 7.5

    Pros

    This makes the music you listen to better, plain and simple. It's hard to listen to music without it. It feels like somethings missing. This really dilivers a better sound.

    Cons

    It does not work that well when your listening to rock music or heavy metal. I'm sure that you could get the same output using the EQ, but it will takes some time to get it to the DFX presets.

    "good for amateur sounds, overkill on commercial tracks"

    June 18, 2006  |   By DJ RIDOO

    Version: DFX Audio Enhancer 7.5

    Pros

    What this program does is master sounds. I was looking for a good compressor for home-made streaming video's on the internet, that's the 'dynamic boost' they talk about. Many amateur sounds on the internet lack proper mastering, so then this program is good (mostly for ambience and dynamic boost).

    Cons

    Quote "With DFX you can transform the sound of your PC into that of an expensive stereo system placed in a perfectly designed listening environment." = ********!

    Like I said. Don't use this on professional tracks, they already contain this 'magic'. Else you'll have a pumping sound (compressor), no mid freq's (due to bass en treble boost) and a muddy reverb sound like you're in a church. In the long term you'll train your ears to a smiley-equaliser.

    "The improvement of audio quality with DFX is simply AMAZING!"

    May 9, 2006  |   By Dano

    Version: DFX Audio Enhancer 7.5

    Pros

    Being a audiophile this is the software for me! Keep on developing to make it even better (IF you can improve on an already perfect app! Being a community radio station, we find that our mp3 music actually sounds BETTER than the original CD versions, also so sez our listeners after they heard the difference.

    Cons

    None. :)
