JRiver Media Center is a nice alternative to Foobar2000. you have to pay for it but there is a trial. they do have a free version called JRiver Media Jukebox but it's a little light weight.

JRiver would be better if it had a good equalizer. The equalizer alone is stopping me from using JRiver.

What if I use the equalizer of the soundcard software? Isn't it the sameting? or different?

post #205 of 5462
Asio bypasses the creative suite so the equalizer won't work.

To be honest I wouldn't put too much emphases on asio, unless you're entire music collection is in flac or alac, then you most likely won't hear a difference. Even then I wouldn't worry too much



I personally don't use asio because its not a worthwhile difference to me.

Hmmm

 

I had thought maybe it gave a great difference on regular daily music listening.

 

If the difference is minimal or neglectable, perhaps I shouldn't worry about Asio.

Negligible IMO.

I just got the ZxR on Friday. When I installed the drivers from the CD, then ran the Creative Update program, there was a driver update.

Out of the blue, since we are talking audio

 

What is the best media player out there? or the one that you guys really think it has great features.

 

I am using Windows Media Player.

 

I was using Itunes but trying to get out of the Apple Jail.
