Must Have Audiophile Software

An audiophile yearns for the best audio quality; however you cannot have a perfect audiophile system without a good budget. The advantage of a digital audiophile versus an analogue audiophile is the availability of other software which would aid in the sound playback. Some of the software are free and give a huge impact to the playback of sound.

Audacity

Audacity

This software enables you to edit your tracks in any audio format; the latest version supports FLAC (Free Lossless Audio Codec). Audacity offers Bass Boost, Amplify, Click Removal, Noise Removal and etc. These features are valuable especially when transferring from analogue to digital. Noise Removal removes the hisses on the tracks this is especially useful in classical music and home recordings. The piano is hard to “dub” or to put a microphone therefore there is an excess amount of noise which needs to be removed. Audacity turns your home recordings to studio class recordings by the use of Noise Removal.

The Music Player you choose is very important, a music player compatible with DFX Audio Enhancer is recommended. Foobar 2000 is a light weight music player which can play almost any audio format. It is customisable and a wide array of themes is available. Foobar 2000 uses less memory than most of the audio players. Other music players to choose from are: Winamp, Media Monkey, JRiver, Windows Media Player and etc.

Sometimes it is hard to get lossless audio files and that is when a CD/DVD Ripper comes in handy. There are two Rippers that are commonly used when ripping, and these are DBpoweramp and EAC (Exact Audio Copy). DBpoweramp is more user-friendly among the two while EAC is more preferred by many audiophiles. These rippers usually rip the CD/DVD to either WAV or FLAC which are audiophile worthy audio files.

Excellent tips.

Good Job

Thanks for the good information. Well done.

Useful information. I used to use DBpoweramp and it was free. Did it become shareware? I liked it on versions of windows prior to XP.
