But if you don't have clean output from your machine it's easy to fix with an external USB DAC. Check some objective reviews that measure the outputs, you will find that excellent fidelity doesn't cost much.
Do you have that dash in the name of your genres "Pop-Rock" or you just used it on the forum?
Do you put hard rock bands in "Pop-Rock" as well. Right?
Case, what do you think of these two software packages; Audio Optimizer and Fidelizer Pro? I do not own them but found them referred to in some other discussions. They are supposed to shut down extraneous processes in a Windows based music server to reduce jitter. Are they snake oil in your opinion?They might in theory work on some machine, but not the way the authors describe. There are known cases of harware monitoring tools and broken drivers causing DPC latency issues that make realtime audio playback glitchy. If these tools happened to close whatever process or driver was responsible for the issue then they would introduce an actual improvement in sound. But if one suffers from this problem the solution is not to buy these expensive tools but to uninstall the bad software / find the broken driver and update or disable it.
