These options are off. I will double check other options, but the DSP selection window has no entries in the left column and dither/playback gain are off.

FYI: WinAmp uses about 1% of the CPU during normal playback, Foobar uses 3-5%. While this might not seem like a big deal, it really matters when I'm trying to get 7 hours out of my laptop!

Thanks for the idea!

On my E-Mu 0404 I can't hear any difference between Winamp, Foobar, and iTunes. Given that I have 6500+ tracks and like to do my burning, ripping, and playback in one place, iTunes gets used.
