    Lately I have been into listening to music on my computer. Can you tell me what programs are good for enhancing sound? I already use DFX for Winamp3. My sound card is a Sound Blaster Live! 1024 and my speakers are Altec Lansing (2.1). Don't really know the exact model of the speakers but they sound pretty damn good.

    winamp is great to play music off of. i use almost as much as i use my keyboard. just keep your codec up to date, and your hardware drivers fresh, and you'll be in audio-heaven

    btw: this should be in software

    if you want your music to sound it's best, don't add any "enhancements" and play it like it's meant to be heard.

    Thats like saying don't use the equaliser cause the studio has tweaked it to the right settings.

    Yeah... the studio tweaked it for their you can hear a pin drop environment but our loud case fans deny us that =P

    I love Full Bass & Treble eq setting on WinAmp 2.81 =)

    What load case fans? :p
    THAT's why I always want my computer quiet. :)

    No offence, but Winamps eqalizer sucks major dung-pile and sounds like cr*p if you up the levels past the mid-line. If you want to use an equalizer, use another. It'll sound much better.

    IMO! ;)

    XP Abuser, I'll think you'll find that a lot of newer games use "lossy crap" formats such mp3 or ogg vorbis. :)
