WMP enhancements and external DAC
I pretty well play all my music from my Vista laptop using Windows Media Player 11 plugged into my Hi-Fi from the headphone socket.
I find the WMP enhancements very useful. The Graphic Equaliser knocks off some harseness in the medium upper range caused, I believe, by my speakers. SRS WOW TruBass helps to drive my inactive sub-woofer. A touch of WOW Effect seems to help as well.
I am thinking of getting an external USB DAC, possibly a DACMAGIC which I might be able to pick up cheap now that the PLUS model is out.
My question is will I still be able to use the WMP enhancements using an external DAC? I guess that I would as I assume that they manipulate the digital signal long before they get near a DAC, internal or external. However, I would like to be certain before spending any cash. Can anybody help?
