Thanks for the review. I just want to point you to this thread on headfi that I found yesterday. It does a similar comparison and found another player to be also better than ulilith. I haven't had the chance to try.http://www.head-fi.org/forum/thread/340451/lilith-audio-player/150Btw, I am assuming lilith and ulilith are different players?
I have XXHighEnd (and most of the other players mentioned here), and it sounds very good, but not as good as the free StealthAudioPlayer (SAP). SAP has no GUI and is a bit of a pain to use because of that, but for pure sound quality it's not really a contest, SAP is easily better.
HI there,I reply appreciate your referal and your enthusiasm for XXHighenndSo far I am having difficulty with it. Are there some simple clear operating instuctions to be found. So far I can not find any.I have been to the blog but not seen any help. Maybe I am not well versed enough on computers? I have installed XX but am confused how to activate it. Some times I can get it to start others not. One time I experimented and got a track playing and I think it is pretty impressive.Any advice would be appreciated
I first tried XXhighend about 2 years ago but couldn't get it to play nice with my laptop. Probably because I only had 1gb ram at the time. I've since upped it to 3gb and tried the newest XXhighend version, .9z2 I think, over the weekend. This time, I could get it to play but couldn't get many things to work. Without going into detail, the GUI is very frustrating. On a whim, I thought .9z2 didn't support XP. So, I downloaded .9y6. And, this player works very well. I then paid for the license and gained access to the parameters settings. I moved each parameter 1-5 to somewhere in the mid 20s. Now, I am enjoying very warm and relaxed sound out of my laptop. Good CDs now sound great. Mediocre CDs now sound a bit better. Seems like the better the original CD's recording/mastering is, the greater the improvement it has with XXhighend.I read that Win 7 with .9z2 should yield even more sonic improvements. I am in the process of learning how to dual boot my Thinkpad x60t with XP and Win7. A bit of a pain at the moment since I am forced to use external dvdrom to create new partition and install Win7 since my laptop doesn't have an internal rom drive. This is a hit or miss and more of a miss thus far. Might be forced to purchase an Ultrabase which I am not sure would solve the problem yet.I hope XXhighend would concentrate only on the audio engine aspect and let Foobar do the GUI . Currently/previously, I am/was using Foobar with USB-ASIO which is an improvement over ASIO4ALL. I do like the Foobar GUI much much more than XXhighend's. Foobar GUI with XXhighend engine would be best of both worlds. I think I will continue to use Foobar when I am casually listening.
What your media player sends to WASAPI must match the capabilities of the audio device in terms of bit depth, sample rate and number of channels.If the onboard sound card only supports 48 kHz, playing 44.1 will fail.http://thewelltemperedcomputer.com/SW/Windows/Win7/WASAPI.htm
WASAPI talk straight to the sound card so what you send to the sound card should match is capabilities.
