I use it as my post amp on my desktop PC which has 400 watts, I use it for everything gaming, music, browser videos, etc etc. Great application works great.
I was a paying user as well.

Refine music. But it does not work for long!

I am setup more simple here since i “just” use it to generally enhance my PC sound experience. I am using a standard Realtek HD onboard sound chip and nothing special and more or less higher level output devices (5.1 surround speakers and a headphone) but not even close to the audiophile level as some others here. Therefore, i normally try to find settings which are good for general use and i only use a single, self defined profile for everything. That’s my use case.

From time to time and not limited to PC audio, when i see/hear/read about some new details, technical specifications or simply a good sounding idea, i am experiencing around again to see if i missed something. But in the audio case, i do not find extreme high audio file specifications or extremely expensive output devices making much — or any — difference at all or the cost-benefit-relation is not even close to making any sense. :wink:

But that’s just me and since each person is different, has a different user scenario and different preferences, we started this thread to hear about yours and see, what informations, ideas and improvements for the future we can maybe gather from it.

Please use this thread just for this; there are forums for support and such here where you can post anything else (or even suggest a new forum)!

I use it for all audio on my PC. I have a very mild preset that just consists of the high frequencies getting a boost. When watching movies, I’ll crank the settings up a bit, mostly the Bass and Surround sliders. The program is always on. I’m not a gamer, my laptop is too old for that. :slight_smile:

I use it primarily to boost and enhance my music files. I, too, was a paying customer for many, many years and loved DFX. In some ways, I really miss it now, although the free version is still doing the job for me.

To clear/improve the sound affinity (the mid/high bands) of the PC in general, but specially for music and online radio (I only use the Clarity slide and the EQ), that alone does a great job for me, and believe me, I’ve tried a LOT of EQs and “enhancers” and nothing reaches that sweet spot in my brain like FXSound does.

To allow me to EQ the sound in my office/music studio. I especially like that I’m able to easily produce and save tweaked settings for quiet, medium, and loud listening levels. I’m using this with Spotify premium (PC), Loxjie a30 amp (40 watts), and Polk signature elite (es15) bookshelfs. I was a paying DFX user and prefer this new version. Donation made.

I use a laptop as a streaming box for my home entertainment center. I use FxSound to enhance music and movies before I send it to AV receiver. It sounds amazing. I also use it for Teams meetings. It really clears up voices very well.
