Fortunately, a pile of software and hardware is available that tries to sweeten digital sound by putting back what compression has taken out...”

“One such program is the DFX Sound Enhancer.”

"The improvement of audio quality with DFX is simply AMAZING! Being a audiophile this is the software for me! Keep on developing to make it even better (IF you can improve on an already perfect app!. Being a community radio station, we find that our mp3 music actually sounds BETTER than the original CD versions, also so sez our listeners after they heard the difference."
- Herman Erasmus (crfm [at] lantic.net)

"When I first installed the DFX plug-in and used it, it was like stumbling around in the dark and someone turns on the lights. I just don't think I want to do without it. It was the best money I have spent in the last 6 months. Keep up the great work and thanks for filling a glaring hole in MP3 technology."

- Dwayne Farver (dwayne [at] csrlink.net)

"This is one phenomenal product that you have here! I appreciate quality. Especially because there seems to be so little of it these days. I use DFX (1.30) with MP3s made with Fraunhofer codecs. They're played through an AWE64 and a nice little Advent satellite-subwoofer system. DFX took an already good sounding system to a level that I didn't think possible with just software based DSP."
- Kenneth Weiss (kweiss [at] i-2000.com)
