Audio Software

Downloaded music usually requires computer software to played. There is however a lot of software that all have their differences. It is important to bear in mind which operating system you use and what kind format has to be played. Microsoft’s Windows and Apple’s OS X require different programs with a different coding. Not all the audio software is capable of playing high resolution audio. For example, Winamp only plays WAV while JRiver and Audirvana plays DSD, FLAC and WAV. And if you are using a DAC it is important to know if it supports DoP, making it possible to play DSD from your computer. Please have a look at the chosen software programs below.
