Please be aware that much of the software linked to or mentioned on this forum is niche and therefore infrequently downloaded. Lots of anti-virus scanners and so-called malware detectors like to flag infrequently downloaded software as bad until it is either downloaded enough times, or its developer actually bothers with getting each individual release allow listed by every single AV vendor. You can do many people a great favor when encountering such a "problem" example by submitting them to your AV vendor for examination. For almost everything on this forum, it is a false positive.

ABX Media Players

Do you hear any difference in output when you switch between player app A and B?

Here's a comparison test with a different twist (I hope!)....

Take a bunch of CD Rips (in WAV format if possible - so there is no conflict whether the format is the issue) and play them on two different PC based media players - eg. FB2K, MonkeyMedia, VLC and others - at the same time.

Listen carefully using your best DAC and best pair of headphones.

I do this on Windows OS by playing both in sync, then opening Volume Mixer and muting one app or the other. Make sure they are output level-matched.

Of course turn Off all additional processing like equalization etc!

So what's your result, 1, 2 or 3?

1. I don't hear any difference.
2. Slight difference, hard to pin down exactly what it is.
3. Huge difference (eg. "one is shrill, the other smooth sounding", etc)

If you want to test if there is a difference, just record the output and check.
